TiVo Becoming More Family Friendly with KidZone


Here's a great new feature for TiVo owners with small children. Instead of searching for educational shows, TiVo will compile them for you. According to ABC News:

Congress and the Federal Communications Commission have for years required broadcasters to feature at least three hours per week of educational and informational programming for children. The shows are tagged as "E/I."

With an upcoming feature, parents who have standalone Series2 machines and subscribe to its service will be able to access a menu of such nationally broadcast shows, no matter what channel _ or hour _ they run.

TiVo will find shows tagged "E/I," adding them to a new restricted KidZone section where parents will be able to select the programming they wish to regularly record and playback for their children.

TiVo's KidZone parental-control feature, which will also include a list of shows recommended by three parent advocacy groups, will be launched at no extra charge midyear.

Nice! It 's also nice to see the word "free" attached to the service. We'll let you know when the service actually goes live in a few months.
