Kids pick up stuff from TV, so make it something useful

It may be a catch phrase, or a jingle from an ad. The fact is, your kids are going to pick up some quite random stuff from television. So why not make it something useful? With AUSTAR your children under five will have fun learning through interaction, discovery and creative play.

Stimulate your child's mind.

With so many opportunities for your young child to learn, it can be difficult to know what is right at this crucial time in their development. But with AUSTAR, your child is given access to channels that have been developed exclusively for 2-5 year olds. AUSTAR provides fun programming that will stimulate your child's developing mind and educate them through entertainment.
