Recommended Content for Kids on Netflix UK
We’re huge fans of Netflix UK in our house and have been reviewing it for the last couple of months. I’ve joked about getting rid of our costly monthly digital box and just using Netflix. I don’t watch a lot of TV but love being able to watch programmes on demand with no advertising. If we got rid of the digital box we wouldn’t need our landline anymore, the only people that ring are my mum or telesales. However, I haven’t worked out the implications of doing this.
It’s all streamed so no more disc lying around getting damaged or lost!
But one of the biggest things I like about it as a mother, is the dedicated area ‘Just for Kids’, without Teen and Adult content, so I can be confident that she isn’t watching anything inappropriate. She can access it independently via the free App on her iPad. There is a vast selection of content; you’ll find old Disney Classics (e.g. Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp and Mary Poppins), newer TV Programmes (e.g. Sponge Bob, Turbo Fast), Wildlife and Nature Documentaries (e.g. Blue Planet) and films based on Classic Children’s Books (e.g. Little Women).
Big Mother is Watching!
I can also spy on her. It’s easy to see what she has been watching recently in the kids section. Plus, if I’d rather see what she’s watching, as we have an apple TV, I can easily stream the movies to the TV via the iPad using the airplay option. This may be annoying to my Facebook friends but I also have it set up to send a status update whenever we watch something on Netflix. So, if I happen to miss her watching something she shouldn’t one of my friends is sure to let me know pronto.
What are the kids watching these days on Netflix UK
I spent some time with my daughter this morning exploring what she likes to watch and what she has been watching. For the most part I think she may be taken by cute animal pictures when choosing a film, but if it isn’t any good she quickly flicks to something else. I was quite surprised at the variety she has been watching, everything from animations to documentaries.
