YouTube is home to many kinds of videos, ranging from funny, helpful, thoughtful, and sometimes just outright weird. This also means that there is content on YouTube that wouldn’t exactly be safe or appropriate for children to watch, which is why a couple of years ago YouTube Kids was launched.

For those unfamiliar, YouTube Kids is basically YouTube designed with content aimed specifically for children. However at the time of launch, the app was only available on tablets and smartphones, but not anymore as YouTube has since announced that YouTube Kids is now available on select smart TVs as well.

According to YouTube, “Starting today, the YouTube Kids app will be available on LG, Samsung, and Sony smart TVs in the 26 countries where the app is currently launched. We’ve heard from families that they love watching videos on all their devices so bringing the entertaining and enriching content of YouTube Kids to the biggest personal screen (your TV!) seemed like the perfect fit.”

If you are wondering if your smart TV is compatible for YouTube Kids, according to the compatibility list, it should be available if you own an LG webOS TV bought between 2015-2017; Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray Players that have access to the Samsung App Store bought between 2013-2017; and 2016-2017 Sony TVs. As for Android TV, YouTube states that it should be available soon.
