As part of the activities to mark the Children’s Day which is a commemorative date celebrated annually in honor of children, StarTimes has introduced new content for the kids to enjoy more.
In 1925, International Children’s Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare. Since then, it is celebrated on June 1 in most countries.
For this special day, a programme named Star Kids Gala will be on ST Kids Channel, 18:00 CAT on June 1st. The 30-minute length English program will be a compilation of dances, songs, magic shows and other fascinating content to be enjoyed by the young audience.
ST Kids, one of the most popular channels among children on StarTimes has always been giving kids a treatment never seen before.
As a result of COVID-19 global pandemic, they started a special program titled Homeschooling for children to keep up their learning pace with their peers when offline schools are not available, and thus to create more topics for the young ones to talk about.
The other On Air programs including The Guardians of Carcosa, Jelly Jamm and Fantasy Westward Journey also contributes to the progress in imagination and creativity for children.
Recently, StarTimes launched another kids channel named TOONAMI. It is produced and distributed by Warner, and is positioned as an animated superhero channel for teens aged 6-14 with classic series including Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Lego Super Heroes and Dragon Ball.
Another channel coming soon on StarTimes is CBEEBIES. It was produced and broadcast by the BBC in 2002 and is aimed at children aged 6 and under for developing learning, independence, social skills and emotional control.
The channel has won the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television) Channel of the Year award five times. It is currently broadcast in over 100 countries worldwide in six languages.
“It is quite a hard time for everyone, however, together with all parents, StarTimes would like to offer a joyful time for the young audience especially on their own festival.
