It’s no secret that kids love TV.
Whether it’s watching popular shows, cartoons, or exclusive titles, there’s just something about TV that makes it extremely compelling to just sit down and watch for hours. But, what if you didn’t have to worry about how what they watched?
We get it. A parent’s biggest worry at this age is how kids consume technology and content as they grow up. With the advent of technology and the widespread use of personal devices, there has been a considerable shift in how kids access and interact with content on the internet. This has also raised concern among parents who question the authenticity, appropriateness, and the effect it has on their kids. All in all, the whole thing would have been a cakewalk too if weren’t for the unsafe side of the internet, inappropriate content, or even ad-ridden content that screams more harm than good.
And that’s why we wanted to bring a change.

We’re thrilled to take our first step towards building the next generation of awesome content for kids. Say HELLO to DIY TV, a subscription-based video-on-demand (S-VOD) platform designed exclusively for kids.
This first-of-its-kind OTT platform is aimed at fulfilling a latent need by providing specially curated, age-appropriate, global content that inspires learning and exploration through active consumption of content. What sets DIY TV apart from others is the seamless experience of transforming passive screen time to active screen time by engaging with the kids on a deeper cognitive level. Starting today, kids can enjoy a personalized viewing experience with DIY TV on their phones, tablets, or the web.
This is a huge milestone for us at DIY as we try to bridge the gap between active and passive consumption of content for kids. We started with a vision to help kids develop life skills and make meaningful friendships with kids from around the world. As we developed other features of DIY, we felt there was a strong need for something fun and engaging that would create a spark of curiosity in the kids. With DIY TV, we are revolutionizing the conventional norms of TV viewing with a unique proposition: enhancing the TV experience through fun challenges and projects – all inspired by the shows themselves, and sharing it with the DIY community.
For instance, ‘Outsiders Club’ is an exciting program starring kids who explore the great outdoors and model ways to pursue a healthier, active lifestyle. To complement this, the challenges are based around camping, creating DIY stuff, and giving an outlet to that inspiration. Whether your kid is interested in animated stories or live-action shows, our goal is to build an interactive experience that lets them dig deeper into the world of that show.
We’re excited to create a loop of endless entertainment and inspiration with new shows and titles being added every week. With DIY.org’s growing global community of children from 167+ countries, there could have never been a better time for kids to thrive. With the promise of endless fun and pure learning, we’re excited to take your kid on this journey with us!
