Do you need to have the best satellite TV provider in order to receive the Animal Planet Network? Well let’s see—it’s offered by both cable and satellite services so I would say the answer is no. But you do need cable or satellite to watch it.
Your Kids Are Going To Watch TV Any Ways…
They might as well watch something educational and enjoyable. If you’re considering satellite TV for your home, you can genuinely feel good about it where your kids are concerned. There are any numbers of educational and enjoyable programming and networks available through satellite TV. Animal Planet is one of those networks. Though some images displayed may be a little brutal for both kids and adults alike; they are true to life and part of the balance of nature (and also unfortunately a sickening display of how humans sometimes treat animals). This channel covers everything from river monsters to wild animals and pets; it basically runs the gamut.
Are There Other Animal Channels or Shows?
The beauty of satellite TV is that it brings so many channels and shows to so many homes. Animal planet is probably one of the best channels to tune into if you’re interested in animals but the National Geographic channel frequently has shows about animals as well. Some of the best or favorite shows about animals are as follows: Animal Advocate Television; It’s Me Or The Dog; Animal Miracles; Dog Whisperer; Faithful Friends; Dogs With Jobs; E-Vet Interns; Wishbone; Breed All About It; That’s My Baby; and K-9 to 5. These shows air on various channels but chances are that if you’re going with any kind of satellite TV or cable provider you should be able to find them.
Whether you choose to watch Animal Planet or some other channel having something to do with animals, be sure to share the experience with the kids whenever possible. Children need to grow up understanding the lives and needs of animals all the way from those in the wild to our beloved companions.
