Ketnet (as soon as VRT Kids) is a Dutch-language public children's television channel in Belgium owned and operated by the VRT, Flemish public broadcaster. It broadcasts a mix of locally produced and imported productions on the VRT3 channel from 6 am until 8 pm.

On 1 December 1997, BRTN 2 was replaced by Canvas and Ketnet.

On 1 May 2012, Ketnet has been moved on a new channel, timesharing with Op 12. Op 12 closed on 31 December 2014.[1]

The preschool programmes are broadcast on Ketnet Junior between 10 am to 7 pm on VRT Canvas.

Its French-language counterpart is Ouftivi on La Trois.

After the rebrands of VRT 1 and VRT Canvas, Ketnet will eventually renamed as VRT Kids.[citation needed]

As with VRT's main television station één, Ketnet employs in-vision continuity announcers. In the case of Ketnet, the announcers also present various programmes for the station and are known as Ketnetwrappers.
