We first introduced Xfinity Kids Zone last year and the response from users has been terrific. Kids have a safe place to watch TV independently and parents get peace of mind knowing the content has been deemed age-appropriate by Common Sense Media.
Today we’re making Kids Zone a truly bicultural experience: now available in Spanish, Kids Zone meets the needs of today’s Hispanic families and gives children a fun place to browse and watch, in the language of their choice.
This also will be the first experience that provides parents access to Common Sense Media's age-based ratings and reviews in Spanish – directly on the TV - for some of the most-popular Latino kids TV programs including El Chavo Animado, Tayo, Nina’s World and Plaza Sésamo. We’ll work with Common Sense Media to grow the catalog of in-language rated content over time and keep arming bicultural families with more resources and information to aid the decision-making process.
Kids Zone seamlessly blends live, on demand, DVR’d and purchased English and Spanish-language programming into one simple and safe user interface that can be set to either language. It can be easily accessed via the kids section of Xfinity On Demand or by simply saying "Kids Zone" into the X1 voice remote. Kids Zone provides customizable settings allowing parents to filter content by a specific age-group and set up a four-digit pin to prevent children from exiting Kids Zone without permission.
The updates we’re making to Kids Zone on the X1 are one more example of how Xfinity is transforming the home entertainment experience for our bicultural Latino customers and their families.
