Recognising the significance of screen time among children, the Kids and Family profile is combined with a unique Pin based Parental Control mechanism. With algorithms and technology, the profile will allow parents to customise the content access based on their child’s life stage, giving them complete control.

With the best content from India and around the world, available in multiple languages, we aim to be inclusive and an enabler of wider consumption with fewer barriers.”
Headlining the rollout of the kids and family slate is the Pokemania festival, marking an exciting chapter for fans of the beloved Japanese Pokémon franchise. As the exclusive home to over 1000 episodes and 21 movies, JioCinema will be celebrating the fervour surrounding the poke-monsters with a new season unveiled every Thursday, starting on 16 November with Season 12.
