With new content added every week, On Demand is the place to be for brilliant Box Sets to entertain you and the kids over the summer holidays
Find them in On Demand > Kids
It’s the beginning of the summer holidays and the kids are steadily adopting a “too-cool-for-school” mindset as the realisation that they have lots of free time and little or no homework slowly dawns.
While there’s no doubt they’ll be having fun in the sun, when it’s time to come indoors, there’s a sizzling selection of shows for them to enjoy (plus a fantastic film for any little footy fans). So whether it’s a firm favourite you’re after or something new, consider your summer viewing sorted.
Check out our pick of the shows you can watch right now, plus we round up some of the other awesome shows landing in On Demand over August.
