Kids Only Mode lets you lock the app down to show only content that you've already set for your Kids Section. Utilizing the Library Visibility feature, once you've set content to only show in Kids or Both, setting Kids Only Mode to on can give your kids the full app experience for just their content.
When Kids Only Mode is enabled, rather than showing just a single section for Kids, the whole app is populated by kids content. The Movies and TV Shows sections are enabled, but are only populated with the content you marked for kids.
Live TV is in on the action too. While you have the option to turn off the On Now and Guide sections, if you keep them on, they'll be limited to just the Kids filter with no way to adjust them.
What setting Kids Only Mode will do to the app
- Lock the Movies and TV Shows sections to be on, populated only by kids content
- Genre and Decades browsing works for just kids content
- On Now and Guide are locked to the Kids filter
- Record buttons are disabled
Other ways to customize the app for kids
If you want to also hide Trash buttons or the Settings section, you can do so with their individual settings.
And with Server Side Settings, you can do this per client from the server to have the app locked down without them being able to change it. Now you can have Kids specific devices running Channels.
This feature touched a lot of parts of the app, so even if you aren't using this mode, please report anything funny you might see.
