The Preschool Channel
AMC Preschool Network
AMC Preschool Network was an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by AMC Networks. The channel, which is aimed at younger children between 2 and 7 years old, features a mix of originally-produced programming, and series previously and concurrently aired on "AMC For Kids" block – and its previous iterations – on AMC Kids Network.
In 2016, AMC Preschool Network is now part of Lucky Kids' Multichannel Service.
AMC Preschool Network merged into Minimax USA in February 2016
Minimax first launched in the USA on February 14, 1997. The channel was created as a joint venture between Canal+ Group and KEXZ Broadcasting, Inc.
Minimax modified the logo on December 26, 2006. The original 6 mascots were replaced by new mascots (Mini,Max,Cat and Dog). The Minimax and Megamax channels were sold to ChelloMedia in 2006, and so, the 50% of the channel is owned by ChelloMedia from 2006 to 2014, when it was rebranded to AMC Networks International.
The channel is currently owned by Fortner Digital Media Properties and AMC Networks (both 50%). However, Frontier Digital Media Properties merged to Crystal Holdings in 2016.
