Discovery Kids is an American digital cable television channel, owned by Discovery Communications with programming for education of children. Discovery Kids broadcasted a Saturday morning E/I programming lineup for children which replaced TNBC called Discovery Kids on NBC, which ran from October 5, 2002 through September 2, 2006, when NBC ended the partnership and created a new E/I block called qubo.
In 2002, Discovery Kids began airing its first reality television show entitled Endurance. The show is similar in nature to Survivor, whereby teams compete in exotic locales (such as Hawaii and Tehachapi) and is still aired in 2008.
Discovery Kids airs programming for children with an emphasis on real-life adventures, nature, science and wildlife from all over the world.
It is currently the only Discovery channel not to change it's format or logo in a major way. It will be rebranded as The Hub on 10/10/10(october 10,2010).
