Netflix has moved its “Just for Kids” section to tablet territory, launching the section in the Netflix app for Apple’s iPad.
The new section, aimed at kids aged 12 and under, lets users choose shows to watch from a grid of icons. Clicking a button in the Netflix app will take users right to the section, explained the company in a blog post. Kids can also search for shows by character or genre; when they find something interesting, they can start watching by double tapping the icon.
Shows such as Bob The Builder, Thomas the Tank Engine, Curious George, SpongeBob, Power Rangers and others are available.
The app is available for the iPad 2 and the new iPad, but Netflix promises to release a version for the original iPad and Android tablets “later.”
Netflix launched its “Just for Kids” section in August 2011, bringing it to PlayStation 3 in March 2012. It is also available for PC and Mac, Nintendo Wii, Xbox and Apple TV.
