Netflix "just For Kids" Channel Is Just What I'm Looking For

Netflix Just for Kids

Netflix’s streaming service is great for parents with toddlers. Sometimes, you just need something to distract them for a little bit - like when you need to crank out a blog entry quickly, or when you need to prepare breakfast.

Netflix already has a Children (or Family) channel, but it’s not well organized and not easily accessible. The “Just for Kids” channel has most of their favorites lined up in the header - Super Why, Caillou, Leap Frog, Sesame Street, SpongeBob, and even Barney. When you click on any of those shows, an episode listing appears below it. This channel also has movies too. None of the content is new, but it’s nice to have it neatly organized all in one area, without having to search for them.

I also noticed that you can easily browse through episode listings now in the normal channels. There are indicators showing which ones you’ve watched and how much. For ones that you’ve only watched midway, you can resume.

Netflix has stumbled recently with their price hike and failed attempt to split up their DVD and streaming business, but they’re getting on my good side again by focusing on features that makes my life easier.

    My friends just launched a mobile game called "Storm the Gates"! It's available on both Android and iOS. I'm not much of a gamer, so I didn't know what to do when I started it. But my 9-year-old son turned it on and knew exactly what to do. More

  • Live-Blogged The Golden Globes at MWB
    Yesterday, I live-blogged The Golden Globes -- for various reasons. First, it gets traffic. Second, I might as well do something useful while watching TV. Lastly, I was looking forward to seeing Ricky Gervais host the event again. Nothing against Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but he’s my favorite. A google search revealed that the last time I did this for this award show was More

  • What To Do After Your Toddler Poured Water onto Your Laptop
    My 2-year-old and her cousin thought my laptop needed some cleaning while I stepped out to run an errand. The door to my home office was closed, but not locked. When I got back, I was told that my nephew was pouring water with a small bucket onto my less-than-a-year-old ASUS Zenbook while my daughter did the wiping with a towel. When my mom discovered what had happened, she immediately wiped as much of the water off the laptop as she could. More
