It’s so obvious, yet so easy to overlook: of course Netflix is a tremendous asset for kids, and you can cast anything on the streaming service to your TV with a tap. Netflix has an almost overwhelming amount of kids’ TV content, including Handy Manny, Curious George, Octonauts, Sofia the First, and much more. It also has a lot of kid-friendly films, with Disney flicks like Fantasia and Tarzan leading the pack.
More recently, Netflix has funded its own original series, as well, including Dinotrux and Turbo FAST, with much more on the horizon. Unlike the other video apps here, Netflix has a monthly fee: it’s $10 a month for new subscribers. But if you use it regularly—and let’s not forget the voluminous content for older viewers—that can be a steal.
