Over on Duke, the specially created Duke Jr. will launch on Monday. This new initiative will run weekdays between 10.30am and 3pm on Duke (Freeview 13 and Sky 23) covering off the break in TVNZ 2’s kids programming.

TVNZ 2 and Duke Jr. will broadcast both local and international kids programming, suitable for a range for age groups.

On TVNZ 2 titles include Littlest Pet Shop and Be Cool Scooby Doo and on Duke Jr. the complete Cul De Sac series will air, alongside Terry TeoThe New Legends of MonkeyMarvel’s Ultimate Spider-man and Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution.
