Xbox 360's Netflix App Introduces a Section Just for Kids

For those of you with children who have a Netflix account and have been keeping up with how well the company's been doing lately, if you own an Xbox 360, you're going to be enjoying this piece of news from Major Nelson this week. All of my Xbox Live Gold subscribers with active Netflix subscriptions should have received an update if you've accessed the app sometime during the week. The update contains a recent update to the streaming service called "Just for Kids."

Children 12 and under now have a menu option just for them. This helps parents to choose kid-friendly programming with ease as the entire interface is done up specifically for children, complete with pictures of their favorite characters from the various kid networks. On his blog, Major Nelson said,

"Just for Kids" consists of titles organized by easy-to-understand genres such as superheroes, princesses, dinosaurs and girl power, featuring clear and simple descriptions of the plot of each title. And with Kinect for Xbox 360, all of your favorite entertainment on Netflix can be found by simply using your voice.

If you haven't updated your Netflix yet and want to see how this new channel will work, click after the break and check out the video.
