Because of low finances, the beloved children's show, Sesame Street has moved to HBO. The repeats will still be on PBS and the new episodes will still be available for PBS to broadcast after nine months but this doesn't seem right to me. A children's show is now on the same channel as some really adult shows. I'm not saying that Sesame Street will suddenly be an adult show just because it's on HBO. It's still for kids, still educational and fun, but the move seems extreme. Sesame Street belongs on PBS. PBS has a special place in my heart. I remember being a kid and loving all of the PBS shows, especially Sesame Street.
Also, not all children have access to cable, or internet, or cell phones, etc. It's not fair to the kids that don't have those things. They have to wait for nine months for a new episode (even though most kids won't notice). If they want to reach all types of children, they should keep it on public television.
