Besides the above mentioned shows, your kids will be able to follow their favorite TV Shows straight from your Windows 8 tablet, such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Kung Fu Panda and others, with no ads whatsoever. You can choose to view in fullscreen or snap to the side; so that you can watch while you work.
