The BBC is to spend an extra £34m on children’s content over the next three years.
The investment comes as plans were announced to reinvent the corporation “for a new generation” and combat competition from media giants like Netflix and Amazon.
Director general Tony Hall said it was “the biggest investment in children’s services in a generation”.
The funding was unveiled as part of the BBC’s first Annual Plan.
Setting out the BBC’s ambitions for the coming year, the extra money for children’s content is going to be invested across the three years to 2019-20.
