Question Any media players with content focus for children (preferably with cableCARD support)

I like the new Kids area on Netflix (when I tried it with a desktop web browser).

I thought it would be nice if there was an media playback STB/dongle (attached to TV) that has menus/Theme/selections/channels/views/ meant for children. If it could play games, that would be nice too.

Also, if the device can detect and take advantage of cableCARDs for Live TV (either over LAN or builtin).

Can your HTPC Media Center / DVR Do this??

Roku would probably be your best part, specifically the Roku 3 which comes with a gaming remote. The games are nothing fancy, but you can review what games they have available here https://www.roku.com/channels/#!browse/games/by-popular

As for cablecard support, I'm not aware of any streaming box that supports a cablecard.
