Sky has announced the launch of a great new feature for parents for their Sky Q, Parents’ Guide is a new movie rating system that is designed to help you pick suitable movies for your kids to watch.
The system comes with a rating system for things like, Violence & Scariness, Positive Messages. Consumerism, ‘Sexy Stuff’, Positive Role Models & Representation, Language, Educational Value and Drinking, Drugs and Smoking.
The new rating system comes with a zero to five rating for each category and this is designed to help you decide whether a particular movie is suitable.
Each movie is personally reviewed by Common Sense Media researchers, who combine their expertise of child development and film knowledge to build detailed category ratings, catering specifically for children. The ratings carefully consider each film’s classification based on its proposed rating. For example, a ‘12 rated’ movie will be assessed with a pre-teen audience in mind – if it’s awarded five stars for violence, then it’s a film that 12-year olds could find especially violent, whilst adults may think it’s milder.
This is a great move by Sky as it should make it considerably easier to find movies that are suitable for your kids to watch. You can find out more details about the new Sky Q Parents’ Guide over at Sky at the link below.
