Netflix offering early New Year's countdown for kids

Posted: Updated:

Online streaming company Netflix is offering a way for parents to "trick" their kids into an early New Year countdown.

According to a survey done by Wakefield Research for the company, 34 percent of U.S. parents say they trick their kids into counting down the year early.

Starting Monday, Netflix kids' character "King Julien" is hosing his very own countdown, on demand.

The series "All Hail King Julien" premiered on Dec. 19, as part of a Netflix strategy to acquire a younger audience.
