Netflix is the best streaming-media service provider, hands down – and perhaps the best video app currently available on the Xbox 360 console. For less than ten USD per month, subscribers have unlimited access to the extensive library of movies and tv shows that Netflix has archived. After quite some time, Netflix for Xbox receives a new update.
Finally being introduced to the Xbox 360 app is the “Just-For-Kids” menu. The Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii have had this featured for some time now. Upon each launch, users have the option to enter the regular Netflix library, or select a section dedicated to television shows and movies made just for kids. This makes it easier for children to use the app and find exactly what they are looking for, without being tempted by horror films or mature-rated shows. We are unsure whether there are parental controls limiting access to either mode.
Though it is certainly not pertinent to every user’s needs, for those who have kids, this could be a lifesaver. Even if you don’t care about the new feature, it really is a good way to prevent kids from viewing inappropriate material.
