The CBeebies iPlayer enables children to watch popular kids TV shows online, including Aardman Animation's new series Timmy Time, Charlie and Lola and Kerwizz.

Children's iPlayer

The new CBeebies service follows the launch of the CBBC iPlayer last year for six to 12-year-olds.

Both services are designed to prevent kids stumbling across non-children's programming when using online TV services and provide the opportunity to catch up on popular children's TV shows.

Most TV programmes will be available to view for a week after broadcast with some available for up to 13 weeks as series catch ups.

CBeebies online

CBeebies is already popular online - its CBeebies website received more than one million unique users in the UK during the first week of February 2009, a record for the site. 

The new CBeebies online TV service is expected to add to the TV channel's online appeal.
