Free to Family subscribers and offering more than 900 episodes across 40 series, the Family Channel App makes it convenient for Canadian families to access a live linear programming stream along with on demand content and downloadable episodes for offline access at their fingertips. To commemorate the launch of the Family Channel App, the series premiere of Raising Expectations, Family’s new sitcom starring Molly Ringwald and Jason Priestley, is available now for on demand viewing on the App ahead of its network debut on May 8.


“Our existing offering of top quality, award-winning programming is further enhanced by the Family Channel App, as it makes programming suitable for the entire family available in one place creating a premier destination for family entertainment,” said Joe Tedesco, General Manager and Senior Vice President, DHX Television. “Giving viewers further flexibility to watch the Family Channel content they love whenever they want and through the screen that best suits their lifestyle not only adds value but provides a customizable viewing experience that subscribers can take advantage of.”


Viewers will have access to full-length episodes on demand, as well as the freedom to store episodes for viewing without an internet connection via the Offline Downloads feature. Also available to subscribers on the Family Channel App is the option to watch the entire schedule for all four channels live as it airs.
