Currently, programming on qubo's digital channel is entirely exclusive to that channel, but will soon expand its offerings to include shows from other producers, as well as some programming currently seen on the main qubo block on NBC. [4]


Criticism

Not all shows are seen on all stations. Some of qubo's programming are delayed or pre-empted for local or syndicated programming, especially on NBC affiliates.


Originally, the VeggieTales broadcasts initially did not feature the religious content that appears on the videos before and after the main feature, since the block is designed to educate all viewers. This has drawn criticism for the block and NBC in particular from the conservative watchdog group Parents Television Council, as well as VeggieTales co-creator Phil Vischer, who claims that he was unaware of the intent to edit out religious content when the three programs were acquired for qubo.[5]. Starting with King George and the Ducky, the religious content was left intact in the storyline.

Brent Bozell III whose stated goal is to promote and restore responsibility to the entertainment industry. ... Phil Vischer is a writer, actor, animator, puppeteer, and the founder of Big Idea Productions, the company best known for bringing computer-animated vegetables to life in the popular VeggieTales series. ...
