Kids’ TV Shows Move Off ABC1 Today

Note for parents: as of today, all ABC4Kids children’s programming has been moved off the main ABC1 channel and onto ABC2. The times of several shows have changed, so be sure to check the details if you’re planning to use the box as a cheap babysitter treat for your kids.

As TV Tonight points out, the schedule shift has some benefits: programming now starts at 5am, and Play School is on four times a day. The main source of complaints on the ABC Facebook page seems to be from parents who had developed a bedtime routine around 6:30pm screenings of In The Night Garden. Bedtime messages are now starting earlier, at 5:30pm.

The slots freed up on ABC1 will be used for general programming, though this will inevitably be mostly repeats. Hit the link for full details on the changes.
