As kids head back to school, parents are inundated with more concerns about their kids’ daily digital lives. Families in New England are hungry for guidance on a variety of topics from cyberbullying and trending social media apps to screen time management and finding great media the whole family can enjoy. That’s why Comcast and Common Sense Media teamed up to create a dedicated destination on X1 where families can comfortably and confidently navigate the variety of programming and experiences accessible on TV and across devices.
“The rapid transformation of traditional and digital media continually presents new issues for parents to understand and address in order to provide safe entertainment experiences for their children,” said Todd Gold, Senior Director, Programming, Entertainment at Comcast. “This destination is a great tool for parents and another example of X1’s ability to contextually integrate new information and resources beyond entertainment in order to keep improving the viewing experience.”
Parents can now go to the kids section of X1 to access:
- A curated selection of Common Sense Media videos, reviews and programming suggestions on a variety of topics such as online safety, cyberbullying and social media;
- Videos that offer basic overviews and safety tips for popular social media platforms including Snapchat, Instagram, Musical.ly and Kik;
- Educational videos and content applicable to children of all ages, such as “8 Rules for Safe Smartphone Use,” “6 Ways to Help Your Kids Stop Multitasking During Homework,” “5 Ways to Spot Fake News” and more, with several titles available in Spanish;
- Reviews of new and returning TV shows such as Stranger Things just in time for the start of Fall TV.
