Want to watch Caillou or Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood? Amazon will now be your only option.

The company announced on Friday a multi-year deal with the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) to make some of its PBS Kids shows like Wild Kratts available to Amazon Prime Video subscribers. Those customers will be able to watch the programs as part of their subscription, and even download them onto their devices to watch offline—particularly handy during family road trips.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but many of PBS Kids’ shows will become exclusive to Amazon Prime Video, and will be removed from competing services like Netflix and Hulu, a PBS spokeswoman told Fortune. Exclusive shows will include Arthur, WordGirl, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Wild Kratts, and Odd Squad. All of the shows will still be broadcast through PBS’s local channels and its website and apps before becoming available as well on Amazon about six months later.

Other shows, however, including Super Why! on Netflix, Sesame Street on HBO and its online streaming, Curious George on Hulu, and Thomas and Friends on various services, are not part of the exclusive deal, said PBS.

PBS is also in the process of developing a free service that will stream live programing for children 24/7 on multiple platforms, including its website and apps, and streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, and Chromecast.
