“Pest Quest” Children’s Show Now Available On Demand on Your TV
During the summer we told you about the debut of the PPMA-produced children’s show, “Pest Quest,” online via the Pest Quest Channel on our consumer site, PestWorld.org. Now, we are excited to share that the program featuring extended episodes, has been chosen for On Demand programming and is available on televisions in more than 31 million households across the country. The program will be available in On Demand libraries for periods of one month at a time and is in rotation with other children’s programming available through the content provider, MagRack. The provider distributes content to virtually all cable and satellite TV systems, including Verizon Fios, Comcast, DirecTV, Dish Network and more with the exception of Time Warner Cable and a few smaller cable systems. Its first run will end November 28, 2010 and will be available again in the New Year starting on January 6, 2011.
The educational show, hosted by a group of energetic pre-teens in a fun, colorful science lab, teaches kids about the fascinating world of insects, rodents and small wildlife. In addition to sharing fun facts, the show educates children about the risks posed by certain creatures when they enter our homes and properties and become pests. The show also encourages children, the pest management industry’s future customers, as well as parents who watch the show along with their kids, to recognize the value of professional pest management.
“Pest Quest” is a found in your On Demand library on your TV by selecting the free children’s programming. Some systems will have this under the MagRack bucket. “Pest Quest” will also remain available through NPMA’s web sites, PestWorld.org and PestWorldForKids.org, as well as the Pest Quest Channel, where brand new episodes are posted twice a month.
