Quick Look: Kids & Family on The Roku Channel contains an overwhelmingly-large library of content for kids of all ages. Watch some of your favorite cartoons or animated features, check out what's happening on Sesame Street, or learn about numbers, colors, letters and shapes on the many learning videos. To narrow your choices, you can browse through over three dozen video groupings that include:
- Characters - 40 to choose from, including Peppa Pig, Like Nastya, Roblox, Ryan's World, and CoComelon
- Age Groups - Ages 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10+
- Categories - Experiments & Fun, Superheroes, Video Games, Princesses, Challenges, Crafts, and six more
- Tweens HQ - over 20 animated series for the older kids, including Hot Wheels City, Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego, and Transformers Rescue Bots
- Learn at Home - 3 dozen series, including Sesame Street Songs & Clips, Pinkfong! Dinosaur Friends, and Xploration Outer Space
Also available are over three dozen full-length movies such as Megamind, Free Birds, Kung Fu Panda, and Agent Cody Banks.
In addition to the large VOD library, Kids & Family on The Roku Channel provides over 30 live-streaming TV channels. From the Featured category on the channel's home page, scroll across to "Live TV Kids Channel Guide" to access a traditional programming grid that shows current and upcoming shows for every channel. For the most part, each channel provides programming from a specific content creator. Channels include Lego, Ryan and Friends, Pocket.Watch, Fireman Sam, HappyKids.TV, and BatteryPop.
To use live TV, press the OK button on your remote to switch from the grid to full screen. The up and down directional buttons let you channel surf without going back to the grid, while the left directional button pulls the grid back up; be careful - the "back" button takes you out of live TV and back to the main channel menu.
