It broadcast from 06:00 to 19:00 each day sharing the same bandwidth with ABC2 (broadcast after 19:00).

HistoryEdit

It was originally named ABC Kids until 2005, on ABC1 ABC for Kids was launched, with times 8:00am to 11:00am and 2:55pm to 4:00pm. From 4 December 2009 (the same day when 6 to 14 year olds' channel ABC3 was launched), a new preschool children's block, ABC For Kids On 2 was launched on ABC2, featuring children's programming everyday until 6pm. Some ABC2 programmes had to be cancelled or relocated to other channels, such as rage, which is now seen exclusively on ABC1. The block was extended to start as a new channel sharing the same bandwidth of ABC2 at 6am and end at 7pm and renamed ABC 4 Kids on 2 May 2011.[2]
