Comcast rolls out ‘Summer of Kids’

Comcast said it is rolling out a feature called Xfinity TV’s Summer of Kids to spotlight its library of family-friendly on-demand content.

The thinking is that when families go on vacation or go camping, they will have more than 1,000 downloadable kids TV shows and films that they can view on an iPad or some other device.

“Finding Nemo,” “The Muppets,” “Brave,” and “Freaky Friday” are among available options that are included as part of a customer’s subscription, Comcast said.

We’re also giving parents ultimate peace of mind for safer, smarter viewing across devices by expanding our parental controls and giving them new ways to help find age-appropriate content across our entire Xfinity On Demand platform.”
