  • The Magic School Bus (seasons 1-4) will be a Netflix online exclusive.
  • Netflix recently let a Viacom deal covering popular kids' shows lapse. But the streaming giant has since reached deals to add shows from Disney and PBS, and original content from Dreamworks.

    To the Scholastic Investors: Welcome to the Netflix family! Your material can be seen at the convenience of viewers; no oppressive TV schedule will be involved.

     

    To those who watch the Scholastic content: Be aware that Scholastic has been criticized for sometimes having a liberal or left-wing bias. I have seen some of that bias myself in their series "Horrible Histories."
