Top 10 Best TV Channels for Kids and Teens

The Top Ten
1 Disney Channel

I love Disney Channel! There are amazing actors, and it has created some of the biggest stars, such as Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus. And it's appropriate!

These are my favorite channels: Jessie, Austin and Ally, Good Luck Charlie, Wizards of Waverly Place, Dog With a Blog, Suite Life on Deck, Bunk'd, Shake It Up, KC Undercover, and Sonny With a Chance. Of course, there is Hannah Montana and Suite Life of Zack and Cody. And how could we forget Camp Rock and the High School Musical trilogy?

The new shows like Best Friends Whenever, Evermoor, and Backstage aren't that good.

2 Nickelodeon Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network launched on December 1, 1977, and is owned by Viacom through Viacom Media Networks and based in New York City.

There are some amazing shows like Victorious, iCarly, and Instant Mom. It created big stars such as Ariana Grande. Recently, the shows haven't been great.

WITs Academy (spin-off from a really bad show, Every Witch Way), Talia in the Kitchen, Neighbours, and Home and Away aren't even age-appropriate. There is a new one coming out about a princess from another kingdom, and it doesn't look good. It's going downhill, and if you compare it with Disney Channel, Nickelodeon is a bit babyish. I don't mean to sound rude, but that's my opinion.

3 Cartoon Network Cartoon Network is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

Disney Channel is nothing but a bunch of played-out sitcoms that will drive most people who aren't little girls insane if it's on for too long. Nickelodeon is nothing but trashy sitcoms and childish cartoons these days.

Cartoon Network is the best kids' channel because it is the only kids' channel left with creativity and good cartoons that teens can enjoy too, with shows like Regular Show and Adventure Time. Steven Universe is another creative show with a good storyline. The Amazing World of Gumball is also great when it comes to Spongebob-type humor. Everything else is decent, but the shows I mentioned are the best they offer.

Let's also not forget that Cartoon Network has the best late-night block, Adult Swim, which currently plays King of the Hill, Bob's Burgers, The Cleveland Show, American Dad, and Family Guy every night, as well as their own great animated and live-action shows. Plus, every Saturday night is Toonami, which plays anime. And Cartoon Network also doesn't have an annoying preschooler block like Nick Jr. and Disney Junior.

4 Disney XD Disney XD is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Disney Channels Worldwide unit of the Disney–ABC Television Group, itself a unit of the Disney Media Networks division of The Walt Disney Company.

Now that Disney Channel has moved its best programming here, it is clearly one of my favorites. Even when Kick Buttowski and I'm in the Band were on the air, I considered it a great content provider for its target audience. But now, with Gravity Falls and Star vs. The Forces of Evil, it is simply number one for me (if we don't consider those action-packed teen sitcoms).

It has a few bad shows like Mighty Med and Kirby Buckets, but there are also a lot of great shows. Want proof? Here you go: Gravity Falls, Phineas and Ferb, Milo Murphy's Law, Kickin' It, Mr. Young, Star vs. The Forces of Evil, and Zack and Cody.

5 Nicktoons

This channel was my childhood! It used to be called Nicktoons Network, which had modern Nicktoons and classic Nicktoons. It also had great acquired programs like Martin Mystery, The Secret Show, and Corneil and Bernie. It was the perfect kid network, having thumb wrestling tournaments and commercials with Nicktoons in them.

Nicktoons is better than the actual main channel, Nickelodeon. I say this because Nickelodeon, in my opinion, has made some huge mistakes over the years, such as discontinuing The Mighty B, Danny Phantom, and Invader Zim. (The list goes on.) This network, on the other hand, even if it's by Nick, still holds the most memorable cartoons.

6 TV Land

It is very amazing, and my children watch it every day!

7 Disney Junior Disney Junior is an American digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by the Disney Channels Worldwide unit of the Disney–ABC Television Group, itself a unit of the Disney Media Networks division of The Walt Disney Company.

When I was a kid in seniors and juniors, I always watched Mickey Mouse on this channel.

My sister likes Sofia the First. She thinks it is cool. Wow!

My daughter only watches Disney Junior and loves it!

8 Nick 2 Nick 2 is a sister channel to Nickelodeon, aimed primarily at a younger audience including children and pre-teens. It offers a variety of shows such as animated series, game shows, and educational programming. Its content is designed to be family-friendly and often encourages viewer participation.
9 Nick Junior

I had to add this because it gave me memories when I was a baby. It had good shows in my time, but then again, babies watch anything. But it had good shows like Wow Wow Wubbzy (don't know how to spell) and Blue's Clues. Good times.

10 Teennick TeenNick is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Viacom Kids & Family Group, a unit of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom.

I love this channel. On the original Nickelodeon, it has a mix of babyish programs and teen shows, so it's cool that they separated them with Nicktoons, Nick Jr., and TeenNick. This way, the older ones don't have to put up with little kids' programs, and little kids don't watch older kids' programs. If that even makes sense, laugh out loud.

TeenNick has awesome old Nickelodeon shows like Full House, which is addicting, funny, realistic, yet sends a message. Don't criticize me.

It's awesome for kids and teens. It brings back so many memories!

The Contenders
11 PBS Kids PBS Kids is the brand for most of the children's programming aired by the Public Broadcasting Service in the United States. It has educational shows like Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers Neighborhood in 1969.

The most educational TV channel of all time. I like Curious George, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, and some other cartoons. It's a good thing there are no battles in cartoons, just exploring and learning!

Very good! So much better than the mindless shows on the other "kids" stations.

12 The Hub The Hub was an American digital cable and satellite television channel that targeted a family audience. Co-owned by Discovery, Inc. and Hasbro, the channel featured a mix of animated series, game shows, and reruns of classic family entertainment. The channel has since been rebranded as Discovery Family... read more

The Hub is one of the most underappreciated channels ever. It airs Animaniacs, My Little Pony, and Transformers. All things you can enjoy.

We lost it, and I wish I knew where to get it back. My children and I loved it! I enjoyed sharing my favorite cartoons with my kids.

13 Teletoon Teletoon is a Canadian English-language Category A specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment that broadcasts animated programming.

Good old cartoons and only the good new cartoons of Cartoon Network and a lot of creative and super original shows also, like 6teen, Total Drama, and Stoked.

14 Teletoon Retro Teletoon Retro was a Canadian English-language Category B specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment.

Like Boomerang, it's also a good idea! A Canadian TV channel for the best classic cartoons like The Flintstones or Scooby-Doo Show.

15 Discovery Kids
16 Jetix Jetix, formerly Fox Kids in Europe, Latin America and North America, was a worldwide children's television programming brand owned by Jetix Europe, Jetix Latin America and ABC Cable Networks Group.

I loved Jetix so much! Disney is cool with me, but it will never let me forget about Jetix! One of the best channels I've ever seen in my lifetime.

There will never be a better channel program than Jetix. All of the best shows came from Jetix, and I just hated watching it go.

17 CBBC CBBC is a BBC children's television strand aimed at children aged from 6 to 12. BBC programming aimed at under six year old children is broadcast on the CBeebies channel.

Honestly, I'm really lucky to have this channel in my life. However, some shows are a bit childish, but shows like Young Dracula, Dragons, World's End, Wolfblood, Eve, and The Dumping Ground make it my favorite channel of all!

Actually educational and fun at the same time. Helps you in life.

The shows are amazing. I know kids who watch and teens who watch.

18 MTV MTV is an American basic cable and satellite television channel which is a part of the "Viacom Music and Entertainment Group" which is the flagship Property of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom, of which it is a subsidiary.
19 Boomerang Boomerang is an American digital and satellite television channel owned and distributed by Time Warner through Turner Broadcasting.

Boomerang is like a combination of all of them. Yeah, it's the best channel. Best cartoons, and what else do we need? That's all about it, yeah.

Totally love this one, you guys! It totally brings back the great memories. It always gives me a laugh and makes me feel better.

Boomerang is great because it gives older kids that nostalgic feeling. Though shows are not the same today, they were great before. It is like Cartoon Network's dump of old shows like Teen Titans (original) and Ed, Edd n Eddy.

20 Fox Kids Fox Kids is a former American children's programming block and branding for a slate of international children's television channels.
21 YTV YTV is a Canadian English-language Category A cable and satellite television specialty channel that is owned by Corus Entertainment.

It's a great channel for children and youth because of its awesome lineup of shows. It is also a sister channel of Nickelodeon and features many of their shows.

22 Cartoon Network Too
23 Baby TV BabyTV was a television channel for infants, toddlers, and parents, distributed worldwide by Fox International Channels and TV4. It launched on December 4th, 2003 and became defunct on April 14th, 2019.

The best ever for young children. My girls learned so much from it and love it. It's so much better than watching cartoons all day.

Great program. My kids all loved watching it. The little one still loves some shows even though she is 5.

Great for babies. That's how they grow.

24 Adult Swim
25 Minimax Minimax is a Central European children's channel broadcast in Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia and Serbia.
