Netflix Launches Kinect-Compatible ‘Just For Kids’ Channel On Xbox 360

If you’re a protective parent (or babysitter) concerned about what your kids are watching on your Xbox 360′s Netflix app, fear not—the service has a nifty feature called “Just for Kids” which just launched on Xbox Live. Aside from grouping up all the shows that are safe for your young ones to watch, it also eliminates “adult” programs from the lineup.

Of course, the “Just for Kids” moniker might be slightly objective, since some of the shows featured are actually all-ages content that 20-somethings and older would watch.

For example, here’s a list of programs that actually are pretty violent, or have slight “adult” themes:

  • Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Superman
  • The Adventures of TinTin
  • X-Men (Fox Animated Series)
  • Spongebob Squarepants

Two other unique features to the service are a “Character Row” that lets kids pick shows by a main character’s icon, and Kinect-enabled selection options, just like the main product. It’s a part of the package if you’re already a Netflix subscriber, so children can take a break and relax with cartoons inbetween rounds of Call of Duty and Gears of War.
