CBBC is a British free-to-air children’s television channel operated by the BBC. Launching in 11 February 2002 as a spin-off from the BBC’s children’s strand of the same name, CBBC broadcasts for fourteen hours per-day from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Freeview, cable, IPTV and digital satellite. CBBC is primarily aimed at viewers 6 to 12 years old.
CBBC aims to encourage children to find out more about existing interests and inspire them to develop new ones; helps them understand the world around them and provides an entertaining watch when they just want to relax. The majority of output is UK-made, reflecting children’s lives in the UK today.
