Discovery Kids makes Amazon UK debut

Discovery has launched its children's TV service on Amazon Channels in the UK.

Discovery Kids, which targets 4-8 year olds, features animated series, animal shows and educational favourites designed to be fun and to stimulate the curiosity and interest of children in the world around them, according to the company.  Amazon Channels is part of Amazon Prime Video.

The service also features My Little Pony, Peppa Pig and Angry Birds Toons. Discovery’s original content includes Doki, an animated series about a seven-year-old dog who asks lots of questions about the world around him and How Do They Do it – Kids, an educational and entertaining series teaching young children fun facts about the world.

Alex Green, European MD of Channels and Sport at Amazon Prime Video said:
“We want to offer our customers a broad selection of kids shows, and with the addition of the new Discovery Kids channel, only available to Prime Video members, they will be able to access both fun and educational favourites all in one place. Discovery Kids adds to Prime Video Channels’ line up of over 60 subscription channels, allowing Prime members the freedom and choice to pay for only what they want to watch without having to sign up to a bundle or a contract, all with the convenience of watching in one app.”
