TV industry expert Dean Koocher, renowned for bringing iconic shows like the Teletubbies to the Americas, has co-founded Kidstream, a revolutionary streaming platform designed to be the “Netflix for kids.” The platform, co-founded alongside Jordan Jedeikin, promises a safe, ad-free, and enriching environment for young viewers, setting a new standard in children’s content consumption.

Kidstream stands out among streaming platforms by curating the best kids’ content globally and creating a safe haven for parents seeking quality programming for their children. Pioneering the concept of a “walled garden,” Kidstream ensures that all shows align with five core values: safety, enrichment, diversity, high production values, and entertainment.

“We choose the best kids’ content from around the world and put it in a safe place so parents can feel good about what their child watches. Kidstream is a ‘walled garden,’ a safe oasis for children to explore and enjoy,” says Dean.

Dean Koocher emphasizes the importance of providing a safe and enriching space for kids aged 2 to 9. The platform is committed to steering clear of content that promotes negativity, violence, or inappropriate subjects. Instead, Kidstream focuses on offering diverse shows that promote learning, creativity, and good role models. “Kidstream is more than just a platform; it’s a commitment to providing a safe, enriching, and entertaining space for our youngest viewers,” Koocher shares.

Dean and co-founder Jordan Jedeikin identified a gap in the market for a platform showcasing shows from lesser-known producers and classic favorites. Their motivation to create Kidstream intensified when they secured a spot as one of Comcast’s first kids’ subscription video on demand channels, propelling them into the world of children’s streaming.

Dean Koocher shares his philosophy on leadership, emphasizing the importance of caring for and supporting the team. A great CEO, according to him, nurtures their employees, promotes their success, and communicates the company’s mission with clarity. Listening, humility, and fostering a positive work environment are key attributes he values in a leader.
