Treehouse TV (often branded as Treehouse) is a Canadian English language cable television specialty channel that was launched on November 1, 1997. Its name comes from YTV's former children's programming block, The Treehouse. The channel is owned by YTV Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Corus Entertainment.

ProgrammingEdit

Each half-hour program typically consists of a 15 to 22 minute TV show, followed by a few minutes of commercials advertising other programs on Treehouse TV, followed by a five minute segment such as Toopy and Binoo. Treehouse TV's original programming is primarily produced by Nelvana and YTV.

Former programmingEdit

Treehouse On DemandEdit

In 2005, Corus Entertainment began offering a video on demand service called Treehouse On Demand to cable providers such as Rogers Cable and Cogeco, delivering content from Treehouse TV. It is offered as a free service to customers who subscribe to each providers digital cable service. Some providers such as SaskTel offer it as a stand-alone premium subscription service.

Treehouse (program block)Edit

Treehouse was originally a programming block on YTV. It aired weekday mornings until 1998, after which it was replaced with an unhosted block, called "YTV Jr.".

While most hosted blocks had one or two hosts, Treehouse had three PJs (Program Jockeys) and was also co-hosted by The Fuzzpaws, which were stuffed animal puppets. As the name suggests, it was set in a tree house. PJ Katie had her own TV show, called PJ Katie's Farm, where she acted out stories with clay animals.

After TreehouseEdit

After the Treehouse block ended, The Fuzzpaws got their own show on YTV Jr. and PJ Katie went on to become Jenny on The Zone (Katie was her middle name, there already was a Jenny with YTV at the time she was a PJ). The name YTV Jr. was later dropped; however, there was still children's programming shown at the time, but there was no special name given to it.

Treehouse HDEdit

On April 9, 2013 Treehouse HD was launched as a high definition simulcast of Treehouse's standard definition feed.
