The Herald reports:
The Government is exploring the possibility of making classifications for on-demand streaming services, such as Netflix and Lightbox, mandatory.
Minister of Internal Affairs Tracey Martin said this would bring streaming services in line with other forms of media in New Zealand.
Totally the wrong way to look at it. The question should be “Is there a problem that requires fixing?”
Streaming services are different to broadcast. There’s no such thing as daytime or nighttime.
Streaming providers provide tools to allow parents to set what kids can watch. We don’t need a Government scheme interfering.
