You have to wonder why babies would need a 24-hour TV channel and what kind of parents will pay for this, yet it's still happening. BabyFirstTV, from everyone's favorite media company News Corp., will be entirely advertising free and available on DirecTV for $10 a month. In an article on WARC, it seems the American Academy of Pediatrics is less than thrilled. Their POV: children under 2 shouldn't watch TV at all, they should be playing with real people and things.
BabyFirstTV already faces competition from BabyTV another channel that apparently offers an identical product but better web graphics.
