Single Profile Only

PBS Kids is a free online service so creating a profile isn’t necessary for viewing. There is a sign-up option, however, which allows for the creation of save points and similar information for games on their website. You can still play without a username; you just won’t be able to save your game.

No Parental Controls

While there is a “grownups” tab, there is no need for parental restrictions since all the content is kid-friendly.

Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Paramount Plus, Peacock, SHOWTIME, and STARZ have parental control features.

Simultaneous Devices

Any programming on PBS Kids can be watched from multiple devices at once. Signing into your profile isn’t necessary to begin viewing, so as long as your device has access to the internet all you need to do is go to their site.

No Ads

If you use the free version of the PBS Kids app, brief messages from corporate sponsors may appear at the start of certain episodes. There are no ads if you add the service through Amazon Prime Video.

Offline Downloads

The free version of PBS Kids does not allow for offline viewing. Shows can be downloaded if you add PBS Kids through Amazon Prime Video.
