Cbeebies now available On StarTimes Across Africa

Since the 1st of July 2020, BBC Studios’ critically praised and multi-award-winning pre-school children’s channel was introduced on the StarTimes DTH platform in the African region. Adored by children and trusted by parents across the globe, the channel offers a safe environment for children aged 0-6 with educational and entertaining programming to care for their development. 

The channel is programmed to cater for the needs of a preschooler thru their day. Early morning shows help them prepare for an adventurous day, late morning and lunchtime shows focus on learning for the youngest viewers not yet at preschool, followed by entertainment shows for older children and evenings dedicated to calming and soothing shows that encourage them to prepare for bedtime.

The world of CBeebies is filled with colour, stories, discoveries and laughter, while friendly characters – like those in Charlie and Lola or Teletubbies help the children develop their imagination. Mister Maker offers the young viewers with ideas for outstanding, creative games they can easily play even when the TV is off. Programmes like Hey Duggee, Go Jetters! or In the Night Garden will assist the children to develop compassion, appreciate various types of relationships, they teach honesty to the world and boost their problem-solving skills.
