ABC TV will start moving children’s programming currently screening on ABC1 to the dedicated children’s channels ABC4Kids and ABC3 from February 2, 2014.

Parents, caregivers and children will no longer have to search across three channels for age-appropriate ABC TV content. Instead they can go direct to ABC4Kids for preschool programming and ABC3 for school-aged programs where both channels will continue to offer exclusive, commercial-free programming in a children-friendly environment.

The changes will also allow ABC1 to offer a more comprehensive daytime schedule for its adult audiences.

This migration of content will occur in two stages:

1) From February 2, 2014: children’s programming currently screening on ABC1 on Sunday mornings and weekday afternoons will migrate to ABC4Kids and ABC3.
