Netflix Just for Kids, Now on Wii



My two sons love watching shows they find in the Just for Kids section on Netflix. As a busy parent, I love that they can find great stuff to watch without my help. Now, we have made it even easier for youngsters to use this great section by making it available on Wii.

When you launch the Netflix app on Wii you can choose the Just for Kids section, letting the kids browse without worrying if they will come across content not intended for young viewers. Visit the Just for Kids section in the Netflix Wii app and you’ll find a world of TV shows and movies suitable for children 12 and under. With unlimited instant viewing my sons can watch as much Phineas and Ferb or Johnny Test as they want, without being interrupted by commercials.
