#SesameStreet | The youth programming classic ‘Sesame Street’ has entered into a new five year contract with HBO which will take away the free programming on the original source of PBS for a nine month period of time. The CEO of the nonprofit Sesame Workshop is stated as saying that because of a lack of DVD sales and income, the deal with HBO provides the “critical funding it needs to be able to continue production of ‘Sesame Street’ and secure its nonprofit mission of helping kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder.”
