Win a prize pack from the Qubo Channel



When I was a kid, the choices for kids' television were pretty limited. Sesame Street and The Electric Company were the gold standard for educational shows, and there were cartoons like Tom & Jerry, Mighty Mouse, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Superfriends, and a handful of Japanese cartoons. My parents knew and approved of all the shows we watched; even though they didn't watch each and every episode, they were familiar enough with the shows that they knew which ones were appropriate and which ones weren't.

The list of kids' shows was long enough to provide hours of entertainment, but it was nothing like the choices available to kids today. It's practically impossible for parents to be familiar with each and every kids' show that comes crawling out of the woodwork, so many parents rely on specific channels to provide good quality shows for kids.

Here's one channel that has great kids programs like "The Magic Schoolbus" and "Babar" that's actually free on basic cable -- the Qubo Channel. Here's more information about Qubo:


Qubo believes that quality entertainment—good fun—can help motivate kids to become better friends, family members and teammates and improve their view of the world. Qubo’s children's programming showcases characters that are positive role models and features teachable moments, such as learning the difference between right and wrong, the importance of non-judgment, how to form lasting friendships and how to be respectful and kind. With such favorite, classic programs as “The Magic School Bus,” “Babar,” “Shelldon.” “Turbo Dogs,” “Willa's Wildlife,” “Pearlie,” and “Jane & the Dragon,” Qubo offers a fun, safe place for children to learn and for families to enjoy watching TV together.

And speaking of the classic TV shows that many of us grew up watching, Qubo also offers programming through “Night Owl” - late night programs that include retro cartoons such as “He-Man,” “She-Ra,” and “BraveStarr”. Qubo truly is a channel that everyone – little kids and the “big kids” in all of us – can enjoy!


Check your local cable listing to see if Qubo is available in your area -- it's free on basic cable!

Wonderful learn, I simply handed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually purchased me lunch because I discovered it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! Anyway, in my language, there should not much good source like this.
