HBO Kids (formerly Jam) is an American children's preschool/children's television morning block operated by Home Box Office, Inc. (HBO), a division of AT&T's WarnerMedia. The block runs on HBO Family, HBO's sister station that targets at children and families.
The block runs from 6:00 am to roughly 8:00 to 9:00 am (ET) on weekdays; the block's shows are not shown in a standard half-hour timeslot. The block used to have an weekday 4pm timeslot, which was filled with The Electric Company. The block used to also air on weekends until October 2020.
In 2001, HBO Family launched two children's programming blocks: Jam in the morning, and Magnet on weekday afternoons. Programming for both blocks was developed in coordination with Sony Entertainment, Sandpaper Films, Scholastic, Devine Entertainment, S4C, HiT Entertainment, Golden Egg Entertainment, Poseidon Pictures, Cuppa Coffee Studios, Curious Pictures, Hyperion Pictures, and Planet Grande. Starting in 2010 to 2011, with a new set of CGI bumpers for the block (which were also aired in circulation with 2D animated bumpers and station idents that were in rotation since the block's beginning), HBO began to slowly remove the block's acquired programming, exclusively focusing on HBO's original children's series. For several years, no new programs were produced or acquired for the block, focusing exclusively on reruns of HBO's own children's programs.
On August 13, 2015, HBO announced a deal with Sesame Workshop to move first-run Sesame Street episodes on HBO. The episodes premiered on the network on January 16, 2016, alongside other Sesame Workshop-produced programming, including The Electric Company and Pinky Dinky Doo. The following day (which was January 17), Jam rebranded as HBO Kids. on November 12, 2020, first-run Sesame Street episodes moved to HBO Max starting with its 51st season.
On July 25, 2018, it was announced that an animated series entitled Esme & Roy, also produced by Sesame Workshop, which premiered on August 18 of that year. HBO removed all Sesame Workshop shows from its HBO Family channel by November of 2020, reverting the block back to HBO's original children's series. However, the shows from Sesame Workshop are still available on the HBO Max streaming service. Currently, the block's schedule shows four of HBO's original programs, followed by a children's TV special, before airing one more program, then starting one of the channel's circulated movies or speicals.
