Notably, unlike most U.S. networks of this type (i.e. Nick Jr., Disney Junior), Sprout actually airs advertising in-between programs. They have a stated policy of only airing ads targeted at children's parents, rather than children themselves, though naturally some ads might blur those lines. (Ads for ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' aired after [=NBCUniversal=] gained ownership of the channel, as have ads for [[DirectToVideo DTV movie]] ''Franchise/{{Barbie}} Mariposa & The Fairy Princess'', distributed by Universal.)

In July 2012, Sprout kicked {{Qubo}} to the curb and took over programming NBC and Telemundo's Saturday morning blocks, under the names NBC Kids and [=MiTelemundo=] respectively. With the demise of Creator/{{Vortexx}}, NBC Kids is the last Saturday morning block on a major English-language U.S. commercial TV network to air [[SaturdayMorningCartoon cartoons]], albeit of an educational nature. On another note, despite PBS no longer owning a stake, several PBS Kids shows still aired on the network until their contract to do so (except ''Caillou'' and ''The Berenstain Bears'', the latter of which hasn't been seen on PBS nationally in years) expired on September 26, 2015.

That'll come to an end in October 2016 in favor of a block from Litton Entertainment branded "The More You Know", based off NBC's long running series of {{public service announcement}}s.

Sprout has also recently become known for acquiring properties once made famous on other networks and building programming blocks around them. Following their acquisition of ''TheWiggles'', originally seen on Playhouse Disney in the U.S., they created a block of programming called "The Wiggly Waffle Show." More recently, their acquisition of ''LazyTown'', once seen on NickJr, has led to the creation of "The Super Sproutlet Show" block.

Sprout maintains an [[http://www.sproutonline.com official website]] where much of their content can be viewed, and also continues their Video-on-Demand service, which features programs available in Spanish (including some no longer aired in English on Sprout) and from time-to-time other programming that has never actually aired on the main Sprout network. They have also sponsored a number of public service initiatives, such as "The Great Sprout Tuck-In" and "Kindness Counts", and each year on Christmas Eve and early Christmas morning air a "[[UsefulNotes/ChristmasInAmerica snooze-a-thon]]," which depicts the characters from their various programs sleeping, in order to encourage children that they, too, should be asleep.
