BBC Kids is a Canadianmarker English language category 2 digital cable specialty channel owned by CW Media (a division of Canwest and GS Capital Partners) and BBC Worldwide. Its programming is aimed at youth ranging from pre-schoolers to teens.

While the BBC's children's brand is CBBC, presumably using that name in Canada would cause confusion with the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation).


Since BBC Kids is licensed as a Canadian channel, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission requires that it air a quota of Canadian content. Therefore, along with British series, it also airs a number of Canadian series as well. In addition to the British and Canadian programs that form the majority of the schedule, BBC Kids airs programs from other countries such as Australia, the United Statesmarker and more.

BBCK logo (2006-2008)
April 3, 2006, the original owners of BBC Kids, Alliance Atlantis, unveiled BBCK, a new branding for the evening and late night block of programming beginning at 9 pm EST on BBC Kids which was aimed towards an older audience. They also launched a separate website making it appear as though BBCK was a separate channel similar to the former agreement between Noggin/The N in the United Statesmarker. In early 2008 when Canwest purchased Alliance Atlantis, BBCK was shut down and the evening block of programming no longer features separate branding.


Licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in November 2000 to Alliance Atlantismarker, the channel was launched on September 7, 2001 under its current name.

On January 18, 2008, a joint venture between Canwest and GS Capital Partners bought Alliance Atlantismarker and gained AAC's interest in BBC Kids.
