BBC Kids is an Australian pay television channel using the BBC Kids brand, currently exclusive to Telstra's Fetch TV. The channel is aimed at 6 to 10-year-olds and broadcasts comedy, documentaries, drama, entertainment and nature shows that were originally aired on CBBC in the UK.[1]


On 30 April 2020, Disney closed their Australian children's channels (Disney Channel and Disney Junior), and Cartoon Network and Boomerang became bound to an exclusive agreement with Foxtel in 2021.[2] This left Fetch TV with little children's content. In response it commissioned BBC Studios to create a domestic BBC Kids channel.[1]

BBC Kids, along with NickMusic, launched on April 24, 2021. The channel complemented an existing CBeebies channel available in Australia, catering to children aged 0 to 6.[1]


The shows broadcast on the channel are as follows:[1][3]
