Time Capsule TV

Time Capsule Video (TCV) make high quality content to support the curriculum in the United Kingdom and beyond. In September 2023 TCV will be launching Time Capsule TV (TCTV), a new streaming channel for primary schools that will provide a broad catalogue of high quality programming made specifically for the Primary Sector at affordable prices.

The classroom of the 21st century usually has excellent audio visual equipment, but what the modern teacher is lacking is suitable TV programmes to enrich their teaching. TCTV will meet that need. We will be making tv programmes for all areas of the curriculum, so in the future scrounging up old TV shows to show your class will be a thing of the past.

TCTV will provide a variety of educational programming, to cover the primary age range from EYFS to Year 6. At launch, there will be thirteen series, at least one suitable for each year group, and we will be expanding our portfolio year on year to offer wide curriculum coverage across all year groups. Most of our content will be found under one of three core programming banners, as follows:

TC Tykes

For EYFS and KS1 programmes, they’re bright, colourful and engaging, suitable for the younger viewers.

Story Chest

Our storytelling platform, with series suitable for all age groups, showcasing traditional tales from around the world.

All About

Our factual programme platform, covering various areas of the curriculum, including history, geography, science and more.

Pricing Plans

In these challenging times for schools and school budgets we are aiming to make TCTV an affordable service. Our annual subscription will work out at £60* per class.

This means that a two form entry primary school (14 classes, R -Y6) will pay £840* for the school. For a small country school with split year groups this means this resource will still be very affordable; a three class school with several year groups in each class will only pay £180* a year for its TV subscription. Even with this great price, we will be offering a generous Early Adopter discount.

*All prices inlcude VAT

We are not only aiming this channel at schools, we believe this channel is going to be great for educators in alternative settings aswell. TCTV programmes are an ideal resource to support learners at home. 

Home Educators can either subscribe directly through the channel by a family by family basis. Or if you are part of an organised group of Home Educators or Home Schoolers we can treat you like a ‘school’ and provide a group subscription discount.
