    On Monday, September 1, New Mexico PBS, Ch. 5.1 will launch its new Fall Children’s Program Lineup, airing Monday-Friday.

    Furthering a commitment to using the power of media to educate and entertain America’s children, PBS KIDS and SESAME STREET will introduce a bonus half-hour SESAME STREET program, also on September 1, on-air and on digital platforms. The additional half-hour program will air on NM PBS, Ch. 5.1, weekday afternoons at 2:30 p.m., complementing the one-hour series that airs weekday mornings at 10:00 a.m.

    For the first time, selected full episodes of the 30-minute show will also be available for free online at pbskids.org/video, on the PBS KIDS Video App and on the PBS KIDS Roku channel. By offering this bonus half hour of SESAME STREET in an additional timeslot, and through a growing number of digital services, PBS KIDS hopes to reach even more children with one of America’s most beloved and educationally powerful children’s series.

    “With this new half-hour program, we are excited to build on SESAME STREET’s 45-year legacy on PBS with a format that will make the series more accessible on mobile devices, where PBS KIDS’ reach is growing exponentially,” said Lesli Rotenberg, General Manager, Children’s Programming, PBS. “In just the past year, the number of users streaming video on the incredibly popular PBS KIDS Video App increased 34%. The new half-hour format will give PBS KIDS the opportunity to offer SESAME STREET to even more families, making it easy for parents to help their kids build essential school readiness skills with one of their favorite shows.”
