A NEW channel aimed specifically at sick children is to be installed in rooms at the Hospital de La Inmaculada in Huercal-Overa.
Fan3 of Atresmedia is a TV channel specifically designed for hospitalised children to bring entertainment as well as information on the distressing procedures they are facing. The initiative, created by the Artesmedia Foundation, hopes that through cartoons, a TV series as well as specially created pieces by the foundation it can help children understand and familiarise themselves with their illness and the hospital environment in a friendly and pleasant way.
The channel is supervised by the Spanish Paediatrics Assocation and the Official School of Psychologists.
Fan3 broadcasts from Monday to Sunday, is free for the users and has no advertising. It is currently in more than 100 hospitals throughout Spain.
