Tiny Pop is a sister channel to Pop, which was launched on 29 May 2003. Tiny Pop is a replacement for the retired station Pop Plus, which was originally a secondary channel of Pop. Tiny Pop is aimed at a very young audience (similar to CBeebies). Tiny Pop has two further sister channels: Pop Girl was launched on 6 August 2007, and Kix was launched on 19 May 2008, when it replaced Pop +1, the 1-hour timeshift of Pop.
As with other CSC channels, on-screen presenters are rarely used: programmes are introduced either by caption and voiceover alone, or through animated characters. For a time during the mid-2000s (decade), a group of animated monkeys, known as theCheeky Monkeys, would talk about cartoons, read out jokes from viewers and show artwork; from the end of June 2009, they were replaced with 3 new hosts, Molly, Leo and Pip.
Tiny Pop initially broadcast on satellite TV - Sky (now channel 617) from the channel's launch, and Freesat (channel 605) from the launch of the platform in 2008.
On 11 October 2007, Tiny Pop was launched on Virgin Media, along with its sister channel Pop. Although Pop was removed in 2011, Tiny Pop still remains available. The station has also been made available over other cable systems.
On 14 July 2016, Tiny Pop +1 was temporarily renamed as Pop Max. The channel airs full series of various shows from POP.
Trusted by parents, Tiny Pop is a safe and caring environment for children aged 3 – 7, set within a modern thinking and non patronizing context.
