Leading Internet television network Netflix has launched Netflix Families, a new destination to meet family’s entertainment needs. The company made this announcement Tuesday, June 18.
Parents will find the Netflix rows filled with recommendations of family TV shows and movies, information on the best ways to stream, and videos about how other families use Netflix.
Accessible from any computer or tablet, the Families page is available for both members and non-members.
“We see about a 30 percent increase in family and kids content viewing hours during summer so we know Netflix is a great solution for entertaining families this time of year,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer, at Netflix.
A monthly subscription to Netflix offers unlimited streaming for $7.99 a month, which includes a dedicated kids section that is curated in conjunction with ratings and reviews from Common Sense Media, a leading non-profit organization that provides independent, trustworthy ratings, reviews and information to help parents make better media choices.
In addition to character-based selections, the service displays rows of TV shows and movies organized by easy-to-understand genres such as superheroes, princesses, dinosaurs and girl power.
