Is Netflix “Just for Kids” parent-friendly as well as being child-appealing? MFM went to find out...
Keeping up with new technology is important for mums and dads - after all, we all want to know our kids are safe online. This is especially the case when some children seem to know more about it than we do! But what's the story when it comes to Netflix? We caught up with David Watkins, Director of Product Innovation for Kid and Family at Netflix, to find what the company has to say. Here's what you need to know about this online movie and TV subscription service before you decide if it's for your family...
Netflix gives you access to your own library of movies, TV series and documentaries. Subscribe monthly for £5.99 to be able to watch movies on your PC and Mac, Nintendo Wii, PS3® and Apple TV. The streaming is unlimited, and at least two people can use the account at once, meaning you could be watching a film or TV series while your kids watch something else on a different device.
Netflix “Just for Kids” offers a separate hub of movies and TV shows for under 12s, as part of the normal monthly subscription. The content has all been checked to ensure it’s appropriate for under 12s and is separated by a tab called “Just for Kids”.
