Canceling cable TV may be hardest on parents with kids, but the good news is now more than ever there is a ton of great content for kids outside of cable TV. So here is our short list of Roku channels for homes with kids.
#1 Sesame Street GO

Have a young kid in the house? As a parent who solo parented a not even one-year-old kid, I know sometimes you need a little help. BabyFirst is a great option to help distract what for me was a 7 month old as I quickly took a shower and got dressed. BabyFirst introduces important concepts such as numbers, vocabulary, music, animals, colors, language, and so much more. Subscribe to BabyFirst and watch your baby blossom.
