Elmo on HBO? Yep!

Picked-up this tidbit from  Gizmodo that Sesame Street just signed on to HBO for the next 5 seasons! First debuting on PBS in 1966, where Sesame Street, Elmo, Big Bird and Friends have all held a home since, this is a huge surprise to many. 

I am more than guilty of switching on Sesame Street re-runs on Hulu while cooking to entertain Graceface (she doesn't pay attention yet but I am hoping she learns to count in spanish through osmosis) While I think it is wonderful HBO is beefing up their kid-friendly programming and providing at least 5 more years of a childhood cult favorite, a part of my heart is a bit upset that it won't be as widely available with PBS' regular offerings. Your take?
