Dish Network’s Baby Steps

Posted on Posted in programming

There is a new channel in town, and it is just for babies. It is great news that Dish Network now carries the first and only programming designed just for the very young ones in the family. BabyFirstTV is one of the latest additions to the already exceptional family programming of Dish Network. This innovative channel is backed and approved by developmental experts and has an enormous amount of imaginative, commercial-free shows designed for children from the age of 6 months to three years. EchoStar, based in Englewood, Colo. is proud to include this latest addition to the Dishnetwork family. You can find this child-oriented network on channel 126. It is available as an a la carte choice for less than ten dollars a month, and free previews are running in the Preview showroom, which is channel 288.

BabyFirstTV is a twenty-four hour channel, devoid of commercials, and is created expressly for babies, young children, toddlers and their parents. Learning is the name of the game, and this channel supports early learning, play, and interaction with both Mom and Dad. The low cost of BabyFirstTV is less than the cost of a DVD designed for babies and a single month would have over 700 hours of programming for the baby and parent! BabyFirstTV has over 40 original programs for young children. Some of the programs are: Rainbow Horse, I Can Sign, and Sandman. Parents will also be familiar with some of the brands that will be featured on this new channel. For example, Baby Songs, First Impressions, Brainy Baby, So Smart, and others. The color-coded programs will indicate to parents the educational content of each show. Blue will be for numbers education and green will indicate educational content involving the senses. There are subtitles included, where appropriate to help parents know to better utilize the original programs. Also, the programming is smarter than it first may appear. It is uniquely calculated to provide layers of instruction, so that older or more accelerated children can concentrate on different things within the same programming.

This instructive, deeply rich content will provide children with hours of learning that have never been seen before. The positive programs will foster faster education and stimulate fresh methods of learning for young children. One of the programs features two squirrels that play a game called hot and cold, and involves trying to find the acorns that they have hidden. Another program is called The Numbers Farm and will help children learn to count. It also promotes friendship and learning about animals. Learning to count to five has never been this much fun before. Catch this channel and much more Family programming on Dish Network.
