El TV Kadsre Kids (ETVKK) is an El Kadsreian free-to-air youth television channel operated by El TV Kadsre Television Network. It was launched on February 11, 1998, as a spin-off from El TV Kadsre's children's program block of the same name, ETVKK broadcasts for 24 hours-per-day on Freeview, cable, IPTV and digital satellite. ETVKK is primarily aimed at viewers 7 to 21 years old; a sister channel known as ETVKPS serves a younger audience. ETVKK was named Channel of the Year at the Children's EKAFTA awards in November 2012 and 2016.

History

The channel was launched on digital television as a spin-off of the television programming block of the same name on February 11, 1998, with initial presenters Lillie Pemberton and JP Reeve. The first program aired was Arthur. Between 1998 and 2003, ETVKK began reairing older episodes of the Mr. Driller anime (mainly random ones from 1986 to 1995). ETVKK also gained traction by airing youth-oriented sports shows from the WWF, WCW, and the USHRA Monster Jam.

In 2006, it was launched on Freeview digital terrestrial television.

On August 31, 2016, El TV Kadsre reveals a new set of ETVKK logos. The channel was rebranded to the new logo on October 2nd in that year.

On January 1, 2018, a new graphics package debuted, produced at Grupo 7-4-8 in Puerto Chango. C. Owen Koehler also took over announcing duties from Duncan Baker.

On February 2, 2018, after Mia de Jesus was appointed the head of ETVKK and ETVKPS, she had ETVKK and ETVKPS converted to 24-hour and 16-hour channels respectively. At 10:00pm, ETVKK airs a mix of teen-oriented and youth-oriented shows such as My Hero Academia, Modern Family, Technic Heroes, Sabrina: The Teenage Witch, The Red Green Show, Top Gear, Father Ted, Pelswick, Street Hawk, Malcolm in The Middle, Queer as Folk, The Grand Tour, Get Smart, Riverdale, Tripping the Rift, The Young Ones, The Cul-de-Sac, Corner Gas, and repeats of other episodes of ETVKK shows. A plan to have both channels air for 16 hours a day failed due to lack of interest from ETVKK's viewers, especially on the official ETVKK fan forum Yoko's Room.

In October 2018, ETVKK's mascot became Loeki de Leeuw.
