- Comcast Cable Communications Management, LLC, through its contractor, Mom Central Consulting, provided a promotional item as a thank you to me for participating in this campaign. The opinions and experiences expressed in this post are solely mine, based on my experiences and do not reflect any positions or opinions of Comcast Communications Management, LLC.
- I’ll admit my family went years without cable television. My husband isn’t a big television-watcher or a sports fan, and I didn’t want the distraction or the noise.
- We changed our minds six or seven years ago when our kids were still little. I had second thoughts when the installer left our house with a cheery, “Enjoy your new babysitter!”
- Still, I’ve been pleased with our Comcast Xfinity service, and especially like their On Demand feature for catching up with current shows or for watching a movie without having to leave the house to rent one. Because sometimes I want to watch a movie, but I don’t want to put a bra on.
- I was surprised to learn how much I didn’t know about how much children’s programming Xfinity offers, and that kids could watch away from the television on the computer, tablet, or phone.
Xfinity has kid-friendly shows and movies from places you trust
- They have your kids favorite shows from Nickelodeon, Disney, Sprout, Cartoon Network, Angry Birds Toons, PBS KIDS, the HUB Network, Dreamworks, NBCUniversal and more.
- If you are an Xfinity TV customer you can have access to great kids’ TV shows like Dora the Explorer, Angry Birds Toons, Sofia the First, Phineas and Ferb, Ben 10, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, The Chica Show, Sid the Science Kid, Lazy Town, Pajanimals, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and more.
- And you can download these shows directly to tablets and smartphones and watch in places where there’s no Internet connection. I wish I’d know this during our vacation to Texas, know as the Trail of Non-Stop Whining. Or at least that’s what I titled in the scrapbook.
It’s easy to take kid-friendly content on the go when you travel
Comcast On Demand’s catalog has more than a thousand downloadable kid-friendly shows with Xfinity Digital TV and Streampix subscriptions. With these subscriptions it’s simple to take kid-friendly content on the go during family trips and keep your child entertained for hours.
- You’ll need the Xfinity TV Player to download content directly to a mobile device so you can watch it offline. Also, you will need one screen per child and headphones for everyone. Trust me. With a screen and headphones, maybe we could have driven though Alabama without all the tears and meltdowns, and that was just me!
- It’s super easy to download shows with the Xfinity TV Player app. Here’s a helpful slideshow to walk you through it.
Xfinity TV’s parental controls help you find age appropriate content for your children
- I’m a pretty chill mom in a lot of ways, but I do think it’s important what my kids put in their brains. Garbage in, garbage out, you know? I know you can’t keep them in the hothouse, but I also don’t want to transplant them too quickly either.
- Common Sense Media integrated with Xfinity TV helps me make informed choices about the entertainment for my kids through a media ratings system based on child development guidelines. I can filter the kids’ content by age and most-watched on Xfinity On Demand.
- Even if we’re watching through our PC, tablet, or smartphone, I still can access this info.
- At Xfinity.com/parents, there are tools to help me manage what my kids watch on TV, online and on mobile devices. There are basic tools such as videos, how-to guides and the latest information for making smart media and technology choices.
- I’m really rather thrilled I have so much choice and so much control over what and how much video entertainment my kids see. It almost makes me want to plan another road trip. Almost.
