TechCrunch has learned that Amazon Web Service (AWS) is adding a new service called ChildsPlay that lets kids watch Netflix and other video on their smart TVs.
This service, which we’re not yet officially calling “ChildsPlay,” will allow kids to stream the entire Netflix library on their TV.
The service will be launched later this year, according to a post from Amazon on the AWS Blog.
The AWS blog post notes that the service is an “unofficial” product and that it’s “not a launch for anyone to buy and use.”
However, the post says the service will work with most AWS-capable smart TVs, and that its goal is to help kids watch videos on a variety of TVs.
It’s unclear if the service includes support for all TVs in the market, or if it’s simply for kids in particular.
The new service will allow for multiple TVs to be used with it, and Amazon has indicated that it will allow multiple TVs and simultaneous connections for different users.
Amazon’s announcement comes after the Netflix and Disney-owned Disney XD, the streaming TV service for kids, launched a $7.99 monthly subscription.
The subscription also includes access to Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD Family.
While Netflix and Hulu were previously supported with an Amazon-based service called Amazon Instant Video, that service was discontinued in 2018.
The move by Netflix is a big step for Amazon, which has been criticized by some for its pricing and the amount of content that it offers.
But Amazon also has been able to successfully launch several original content services that were not supported with its other streaming services.
Amazon announced in November that it would begin supporting Netflix in 2019, and it added a new content service that will be announced later this month.
The announcement comes just one month after Netflix said it would be launching a new product called Netflix Video, which it will launch later this summer.
