Treehouse On Demand
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)
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 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.
On April 9, 2013, Treehouse HD was launched as a high definition simulcast of Treehouse's standard definition feed.
Treehouse Direct is a multilingual YouTube service that specializes in various animated and live-action series, including those from Nelvana, another division of Corus Entertainment, along with select Nickelodeon series.
