WDSE-TV launching fifth channel, PBS Kids

WDSE-TV will begin broadcasting the PBS Kids channel on Friday, Jan. 31. It will occupy channel 8.5 in Duluth; WIRT viewers in the Hibbing area will find it on channel 31.5.

The network features educational programming all day, and is available for live streaming at pbskids.org. Some notable programs include Arthur, Sesame Street and Wild Kratts.

It’s WDSE’s fifth channel, joining PBS North (8.1), Create (8.2), Explore (8.3) and MN Channel (8.4).

The primary PBS channel, PBS North, will continue to feature a PBS Kids daypart during the week and on weekend mornings. The schedule of children’s programming on PBS North will be different from PBS Kids.

In conjunction with the addition of PBS Kids, WDSE will be upgrading its Create and Explore channels from standard to high definition.

Most TVs should pick up the channel updates automatically, though some might need to be reset through unplugging and replugging them in or by rescanning the channels.
