Top TV Channels for Kids and Teens


The Top Ten

1 Nickelodeon 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.

Nickelodeon is a great channel if your looking for add something that has educational and teen shows

Nicky is best

I hate Nickelodeon, Teletoon, and YTV

Nickelodeon has really good actors, the shows are hilarious, the cartoons are fun to watch even for teens, the actors are pretty unlike other channels, and much more! It's so enjoyable for kids and teens!

2 Disney Channel Disney Channel

Best channel ever

Disney Channel has sucked for as long as I can remember. The shows aren't funny and they pretty much rip off Nickelodeon. The only good shows were Phineas and Ferb, Wizards of Waverly Place and Good Luck Charlie.

While Nick is in Rock Bottom (pun intended) and Cartoon Network is slowly going more and more downhill Disney has improved recently. They have given care to their animated shows like DuckTales and Big Hero Six, and are also cutting back on the sitcoms

Best channel ever! No offense but I really don't like other channels. Don't you dare tell me I am dumb or an idiot because it. JUST SAYING! Thumbs up if you agree with me!

3 Cartoon Network 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.

This channel (in my opinion) is the only channel with anything good left on it. (Although, Disney has star VS the forces of evil and Gravity falls, which are some of my favorites. However I'm not going to give a channel the best channel rating just for two good shows.) I personally think that animated shows can be more creative and adventurous, which is why I enjoy Cartoon Network so much. Steven universe with its beautiful animation and amazing storyline, The amazing world of Gumball with its humor, (seriously there isn't one episode of that show that doesn't make me laugh) and adventure time with its story and wonder. Personally, if people wanna watch those mindless sitcoms they can. I'm not gonna bash on someone just because they watch Nickelodeon or Disney. But I feel like Cartoon Network is the only channel trying to produce something good. Nick and Disney have the mind set to throw any old recycled plot to their 8 year old audience. But who I am to complain when those mindless ...more

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 a great Show 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 Cartoon Network has the best late night block, Adult Swim which currently plays King of The Hill, Bobs 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 ...more

First of all the only thing Disney Channel has most of the time isn't cartoons it's just these dumb cheesy shows nobody likes Nickelodeon is just a mix of Cartoon Network and Disney Channel but if you want shows that appeal to both adults and children and to make the whole family laugh it's Cartoon Network why well they take chances and yes they have made mistakes like when they wanted Cartoon Network to become Disney Channel by putting on shows like dude what would happen and destroy build destroy now ignoring that did you know Nickelodeon was going to take adventure time well you can all rest easy they didn't like the show and now it's the most watched show and who do you thank for having adventure time put on television that's right Cartoon Network PS Cartoon Network appeals to both genders unlike Disney who appeals mostly to girls and women Cartoon Network should be the best show and should be #1

Well now Cartoons are starting to take over the live actions in the disney channel so yep - HeckishDragon

YAY CN is amazing! they even help stop bullying. the only mistake this channel ever made is Teen Titans Go! that show sucks. Other than that AMAZING I love it!

4 Nicktoons 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.

, how is this not better than Nickelodeon! It has all of my favorite shows, of all time: avatar, power rangers, ren and stimpy, dragon ball gt, and z kai. And a lot of other great shows!

Nicktoons is better then the actual real channel: Nickelodeon. I say this because Nickelodeon In my option has made so 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 by Nick) still holds the most memorable cartoons.

Nicktoons is just like boomerang and teen nick it is a dump of ANIMATED Nickelodeon shows its great like it shows SpongeBob (the one that was actually good) and fairly odd parents (when it was good)

5 Disney XD 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.

Disney, please give more money for Disney original shows! The funniest side of Disney ever! "Kick Buttowski", "I'm in the band"... - roznar97

Disney is not like boomerang or teen nick because they show new episodes like new gravity falls which is bringing Disney alive still and it shows reruns of phineas and ferb which was a good show

Really good! Only programmes I like are Mighty Med, Lab Rats and Lab Rats Elite Force. Its only 3 programs that I like but for me, there are the BEST! Love all the actors and actresses in those 3 programmes

Seriously why is there a Disney isn't one Disney Channel enough I mean I know Nickelodeon has more than one channel but there's makes since there's a channel for everyone nick jr for toddlers teenick for teens nicktoons for kids 7-12 nick at nite for adults and regular Nickelodeon for everyone it's better way better

6 TV Land

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

To be honest, it's a great channel, but with shows like Younger and Impastor I wouldn't say it is for kids... - roznar97

7 Teennick 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 thin think teennick is a really good channel

Teen nick is just like boomerang but worse. It has old nick shows that are not animated and reruns them. It does have some inappropriate words but someone like me a pre-teen will like this channel

Teenick has awesome old Nickelodeon shows like full house, which is addicting, funny, realistic, yet sends a message.

Don't criticize me

Teennick and Nickelodeon best teen/kid networks ever!

8 Nick 2 Nick 2

I am doing this for my brother he loves your show I love him but I will do this for him he is 3 years old he thinks your cool and some he loves you WOW!

Same thing as nick.

9 The Hub The Hub

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

Has awesome shows for everyone

Hub is a kids show so I will add it but I think it has the WORSE shows ever. IT is horrible no kid watches it plural KIDS not babies or teens or even adults kids. Who watches my freeking little pony or 1980 movies.

Family game nigh is so cool. I wish other chanle, s would do that.

10 Disney Junior 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.

Worst channel ever

My daughter only watching Disney junior and loves it!

I love disney jr too

My sister likes Sofia the first she thinks it is cool WOW!


The Contenders

11 Discovery Kids

Love it

12 PBS Kids 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 awesome educational shows like Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers Neighborhood in 1969.

Sesame Street and Arthur, enough said - ElSherlock

Use to like it until 2008 pbs kids turn into garbage and got rid of good shows

Why is this on a kids and teens list? It's not called PBS Teens.

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

13 Jetix 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.

This is the best ever channel which made millions of kids giving awesome childhood memories shows programs no other channel could make its place seriously this should be number 1

I love jetix I want it to come back


They SHOULD bring Jetix back!

14 CBBC 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.

the best

The best T.V. channel I ever watched as a kid growing up! Also I loved to watch Disney Channel but not as much!

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

It is the only kids show that isn't goofy and lame.

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

Why is this on the list? It can't even get.
So, a channel that can't provide services even to a location just 200 miles away from its headquarters...

Why is this even on the list? I can't even get it.

I don't have it, so why is this here?

Yep I'm picking it because I only like one show and that is ( drum roll) total drama but the only problem is I'm from the UK so YouTube is my options to watch it TT /

16 MTV 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.

Nah I'd put The Vault here, it had a short time on Freeview but it's a Sky channel with teen shows (Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Saved by the Bell, Sister, Sister, Sweet Valley High, USA High and Kenan & Kel) and is also a music channel with music.

Adults only

17 Nick Junior

My grandchildren like Nick Jr

I have to say, this channel was good until about 2013, then they started downhill. By 2016 they ran out of ideas and this year, lets just say that the creator of nick jr is rolling in his grave at the ideas the ''production team'' in 2018 came up with.

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 blues clues. Good times.

It was better when it was noggin paw patrol backyardigans and blues clues are the only good shows right now

18 Fox Kids Fox Kids Fox Kids is a former American children's programming block and branding for a slate of international children's television channels.


19 YTV YTV YTV is a Canadian English-language Category A cable and satellite television specialty channel that is owned by Corus Entertainment.

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

My childhood - ElSherlock

21 Teletoon Retro 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 T.V. channel for the best classic cartoons like "The Flintstones" or "Scooby-Doo Show". - roznar97

22 Boomerang Boomerang Boomerang is an American digital and satellite television channel owned and distributed by Time Warner through Turner Broadcasting.

Baby looney tunes suck

They changed the logo.. - ElSherlock

Whithout adult contents

Boomerang is like a blast from the past. I'm not trying to be an 00's hater when I say te cartoons nowadays suck. Big time. Uncle Grandpa? What is that even? Sanjay and Craig is weird, the Breadwinners is just... Wow... Clarence is even worse, and I hate Teen Titans Go the most. It completely ruins the image of one of the coolest shows ever. If you're gonna make new shows, go ahead. But please refrain from ruining the classics.

23 Baby TV 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.

I love it because it is on 622 on my sky q box and its very cute and jewish!

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.

I want to watch children's channel.

32 CBeebies

The best for kids aged 2-9 hands down. All shows are entertaining and most of them have a significant educational value. I have three daughters (2,4 and 7) and they adore it!

Hello? Who doesn't love 'In the Night Garden'? I'm 16; I don't even watch it, but I love it!
