About Juiced TV

Juiced TV is an Australian first entertainment initiative that benefits the health and wellbeing of sick kids and their families in hospital, one episode at a time.

The program began in January 2015 at Queensland’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. Since then it has directly touched the lives of more than 2,100 patients and their families by improving the hospital journey and creating a unique way for them to engage and communicate with one another.

Every week the team produce a 25-minute high quality kids TV program, which gives patients and their siblings the chance to star in their own TV show. The content of each episode ranges from musical workshops, cooking, animal encounters and hospital staff profiles, to giving patients the opportunity to meet their favourite celebrities and go on experiences outside the hospital walls.

Juiced TV is supported by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, in the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital and episodes are broadcast throughout the hospital in each ward via the Patient Entertainment System. To learn more about Juiced TV visit www.juicedtv.com.au or watch latest episodes on Youtube
