Netflix Launches the Just for Kids Section on the Wii

Posted Wed Nov 23, 2011 at 10:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

The new section is designed to help kids find the content they want while offering peace of mind to parents.

Trying to navigate Netflix on the Wii can be challenging for adults, so when kids - especially very young kids - get the remote in their hands things can get difficult.

The new "Just for Kids" section from Netflix gives kids a simple menu to navigate that uses icons and pictures instead of words. It's made for children 12 and under and the content reflects that. You'll see icons for 'Rocky and Bullwinkle,' 'Iron Man,' 'Phineas and Ferb' and more.

It's a nice combination of features, allowing kids to watch the shows that they want to watch without needing adult supervision. It's also a bit of a relief for adults who don't need to monitor the content their kids are watching quite as closely.

Netflix has not revealed if and when this feature will be coming to other Netflix enabled devices.
