Netflix Just For Kids

Netflix is taking the initiative to promote child-friendly and age appropriate content by offering a special place where children can go to find television streams. Aptly named “Just For Kids,” the special broadcast page features content targeted towards those 12 and under, and the content mainly involves “genres like girl power, talking animals, superheroes, dinosaurs, princesses and robots.” In terms of available television shows, the “Just For Kids” page will contain titles such as “Spongebob Squarepants,” “Dora the Explorer,” “iCarly,” etc.

As of now, the specialized “Just For Kids” section is only available through PC and Mac streaming, but Netflix plans to make it available through the iPad, Nintendo Wii, and other enabled devices. Netflix is certainly taking a step in the right direction by promoting child-only content, but after looking a look at the comments for the post, it seems many parents want the option for Parental Controls, so that could be down the road.
