TiVo KidZone

KidzonelogoTiVo has announced a new parental control feature called KidZone, standard for those with TiVo Series2 recorders starting June 2006. KidZone will do two things: it will simplify selecting family-friendly shows for kids to watch, and it will password lock all non-KidZone programming, so kids can’t watch non-approved shows. GearLive has more detail about KidZone, and Thomas Hawk has plenty to say about it as well.

DirecTV/TiVo users (of which there are over 2 million, one of them being me) are out of luck; KidZone won’t be available on DirecTV boxes.

[Thanks to Thomas Hawk and Rohit for the heads-up.]

    Feh. We got so sick of DirecTV and Tivo that we just shut it off. Netflix and bittorrent are our friends.
