BBC Kids TV comes to Lovefilm
If you need something to keep the shorties quiet while you’re emptying the drinks cabinet, then Lovefilm is where you need to be. The Amazon-owned streaming service has nabbed a big chunk of the BBC’s kids TV output, including The Sarah Jane Adventures, Tracey Beaker, Balamory and, yes, even Teletubbies. The episodes haven’t found their way into the instant service just yet, but we can’t imagine it’ll keep you waiting too long. If, like Laa-Laa and Po, you prefer everything to be said twice, you can check out the press release below.
