Flustered parents rejoice: The Sesame Workshop just launched a streaming service. Sesame Go is reminiscent of Netflix and allows users to stream episodes of Sesame Street and Pinky Dinky Do to their heart's content.

Despite the fact that Netflix offers a dedicated "Kids" section to it's streaming service, as well as a number of Sesame Street episodes, Sesame Go is still a pretty appealing option for cash-strapped parents. The service is considerably less expensive, with a monthly charge of $3.99 and a yearly charge of $29.99 ("ah ah ah!"). That price gets you access to hundreds of current and classic episodes of the educational show. The interface is also designed with children in mind and features simple controls and large bright buttons.

There are a couple of shortcomings, however. There's currently no mobile app, so streaming is only possible through a browser that supports HTML5 or Adobe Flash. Also, all the Cookie Monsters out there hoping to indulge their gluttonous tendencies will be disappointed to know that the service only offers 116 out of the 4,352 Sesame Street episodes.
