Kids Place Live is a channel on Sirius XM Radio that is the result of a merger between XM Kids and Kids Stuff.Sirius, which was a result of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approving the acquisition of XM Satellite Radio Holding, Inc. by Sirius Satellite Radio, Inc. on July 29, 2008, 17 months after the companies first proposed the merger. Until February 9, 2010, DirecTV carried this on channel 868, but dropped Sirius XM programming in favor of going to MusicTap. The channel name was changed on 2008-11-12.[1]

Artists that are on the playlist include The Wiggles, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Rocknoceros, Tom Chapin, Emma Roberts, Trout Fishing in America, SpongeBob SquarePants, They Might Be Giants, The Brak Show, The Real Tuesday Weld, SteveSongs, Recess Monkey, Andrew & Polly and Randy Kaplan.[2]

The channel is staffed 24/7 and also has daily live shows.
