There are almost 20 million children under the age of 14 in Kenya. Akili Network has launched the first and only dedicated free-to-air children's television network in Kenya, with imaginative and educative content that parents can trust and children will benefit from.

Welcome Akili Kids! - aspiring to be the most trusted Kenyan brand in kids and family entertainment.

Akili Kids Co-viewing

Akili Network launched Akili Kids! on 31 March 2020, and in just three months, is now the second most watched TV channel in Kenya. Akili Kids! is creating a new narrative of the Kenyan TV landscape that focuses on 24/7 children's educational programming. We have shifted prime-time viewing from evenings on the other channels to daytime between 6 am to 6 pm for children and families. Akili Kids! has helped families weather the pandemic with a safe, fun and educative destination that understands daytime is essential viewing time for all members and ages.

In addition, Akili Network has proven that co-viewing is not a trend, but it's the new normal. By curating great programs that children and families can enjoy together, time spent in front of the television can make parent-child relationships stronger.

Akili Kids! continues to grow audience and marketshare, as the number one channel to reach Mums and children under 14-years-old in Kenya.
