As parents who keep up with current events with a biblical mindset, it was a no-brainer to look into a news channel for kids that has a biblical worldview. When it comes to current events, kids aren’t the typical age group targeted when it comes to the news headlines. Until now. Meet WORLD Watch News!

- World Cultures
This video-rich program is designed for busy homeschool families. Parents can rely on safe content that develops news literacy. It is built with a format that adapts to your schedule can be streamed anywhere, including Roku devices, computers, and phones.
How We Used WORLD Watch News
We watched WORLD Watch News usually during lunch. The first few times, all three of the kids watched it together. However, my youngest two lost interest after a while, but my oldest, who is seven, really enjoys the program.
We watch up to two full episodes a day plus a few featured stories. One of her favorite segments is “What In The Word” where the reporter dives deep into a vocabulary word or an unusual-sounding word and puts it into context. She gets a kick out of the little intro before the segment.
We have discussions about what she watched for the day. Steven is well versed in most anything when it comes to politics, history, etc and when questions come up, he has great discussions with her.
How Much Does WORLD Watch News Cost?
A family membership is very affordable and costs $79.99 annually or $9.99 per month. You could also try it out for FREE for 30 days to see if you like it before you purchase!

My Thoughts On WORLD Watch News
We are very impressed with WORLD Watch News! The production of these newscasts is not cheesy and is done very well! I was afraid that they would be terrible, but I was proven wrong. Everything is professionally done from editing, reporting, graphics…everything is impressive and as a result, Steven and I enjoyed watching the program as well! One of my favorite parts is when Brian Basham signs off saying “Whatever the news, the purpose of the Lord will stand”. It just helps kids solidify that God is sovereign over all things.
Overall, I recommend WORLD Watch News! It is sound for Christian families, it’s affordable and it can be watched anywhere at any time.
