The channel offers a different schedule from SCETV’s main channel, and the streaming version will eventually offer interactive games and features.  SCETV PBS KIDS will also be available on select cable services as ETVK, and as part of various mobile-friendly apps and services, including PBSkids.org, the PBS KIDS video app, Roku, and Apple TV.

SCETV’s main channel and ETV World will continue to offer their weekday and weekend programs for children.  The South Carolina Channel’s popular Night Night Show will expand and move to the new channel in October.  Create programs for adults will expand to fill the 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. slot on the SC Channel in October.
