Kids Section

Channels for iOS and tvOS gives you the ability to create an official Kids section to quarantine all of your kids’ content.

The Kids section provides you with an entire section dedicated to your kids content. This not only provides a section to get to what they want to watch faster, it helps clean up your own library.

How it Works

Channels lets you define the Library Visibility of movies and shows. In the options for a movie or show, you can choose where you want it to be visible. You can choose Library, Kids, or Both.

Content set to Kids will only show up in the Kids section. It will not show up while browsing your library. Content set to Both will show in both the Kids section and your main library. Content set to Library will show in your main library, and not in Kids. This is the default of all content.

Turn on Kids Section

To get started, go to the Library settings at Settings > Library and turn on the Kids section.

If this is the first time you’ve turned it on, it will ask if you would like it to do an initial population of the Kids section. This will take everything already tagged for kids via other metadata, and set their library visibility to Kids.

After the initial population, adjusting library visibility will be up to you.

Protip: If you would like to re-populate your kids section, you can do it in the Advanced section of the Library settings.
