Programming will initially be in French and the shows that include The Wiggles, The New Adventures of Madeline and Dino Squad will be programmed in French.

In addition there would be series such as Count Duckula, DangerMouse, The BFG and The Wind in the Willows. Such classics will be shown alongside original KidsCo programming, including Boo & Me and Jass Time.
