Selection of child-friendly TV programmes and films was already available on PCs and Macs, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3, among others.

Netflix has launched their popular ‘Just for Kids’ section on Xbox 360.

The section, first introduced in Aug 2011, makes it easier for children and families to search for child-friendly TV programmes and films. As part of the section, children can click and watch their favourite characters instantly [pictured], as well as searching by clearly defined genres such as superheroes, princesses or dinosaurs.

“We believe that we can make all the entertainment you love even more amazing with Xbox. Using voice and gesture control with Kinect to explore ‘Just for Kids’ makes Netflix on Xbox 360 more personal and engaging for all audiences,” commented Ross Honey, general manager, Xbox LIVE Entertainment & Advertising at Microsoft.

‘Just for Kids’ is already available on PCs and Macs, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Apple TV and certain Smart TVs, Blu-ray players and streaming media players with other devices, including tablets, scheduled to follow this year.
