Dish is trying to be something special for every member of the family and this holiday season they are giving the gift of a new feature, Kids’ Profiles to customers as a way for parents to build Dish profiles for their children. Kids’ Profiles is part of the Dish Anywhere and the setup process is very easy. Why should adults have all the fun when it comes to using all the features and technology at hand with Dish? They shouldn’t as kids watch more Dish programming than their parents.
The Dish Blog has a complete rundown on how to set up Kids’ Profiles here, but the use of Kids’ Profiles provides several immediate benefits. One would be that profiles integrate and show independent age-based ratings from Common Sense Media. This helps filter entertainment in Kids’ Profiles, based on your child’s age. Kids should be watching age-appropriate content and Kids’ Profiles helps that happen. It also will allow kids to watch only the programming intended for their viewing. There is also a new lock feature that comes into the picture when a child exits Dish Anywhere and then returns at a later time. Their Kids’ Profile will kick in and they will be directed to their age-appropriate DVR and on-demand programming.
This is Dish setting out to make sure those under the age of 13 watch programming that is intended for their eyes and also to give parents peace of mind, since in this day, it’s impossible for a mother, father or guardian to be watching a young one for 24 straight hours. Kids’ Profiles is a multi-level platform that could keep expanding and offers something for both kids and their parents as the Blog goes on to explain.
“With the launch of the new “Kids’ Profiles” feature in DISH Anywhere, now parents can hand over their tablets and laptops to their kids guilt- and worry-free! The new feature integrates Common Sense Media certified ratings into profiles, so you can set age-appropriate programming for your children. Kids’ Profiles are available today on DISHAnywhere.com,” as explained in the Blog. “As well as in the DISH Anywhere app for Android tablets and smart phones as well as Kindle Fire HDX. The feature will be available on iOS tablets and smart phones in the coming weeks.
For those that use Dish at home or on a mobile device, they know how powerful the Dish platform is and how invaluable it can be to a family. Why not keep every member of the family safe and not concerned about what could be going wrong. Many families have been using Dish for years and it’s been a positive experience in the past and now it will be in the future. For more information, you can always check out the main webpage here.
