CBS All Access' library of children's programming will grow to more than 1,000 episodes as additional series are added over the coming weeks.
"Bringing children's programming to CBS All Access is a significant step toward providing even more value for our subscribers and now for their children as well," said Marc DeBevoise, President and COO, CBS Interactive. "We're bringing to market a fantastic roster of exclusive originals along with a library of marquee series for families, and we look forward to continuing to expand our children's programming offering, especially with the future addition of incredible programming from Nickelodeon."
