Parental Controls

Not every show is appropriate for every age group. Parental controls give you the power to decide what content is appropriate for your household. With it you can set up:

  • Channel Blocks: Blocks access to a specific TV channel.
  • Rating Blocks: Blocks access to all shows with a specific TV rating and above.
  • Block Not Rated: Blocks access to any programming without a rating.
  • Hide Titles: Blocks adult titles and programming from displaying on screen.

Your parental control settings apply to Cloud DVR and On Demand. However, they do not apply to in-app content viewed on your TV.

Before any blocks can be enabled, you must create PIN. To learn how, click here. To learn how to set up and enable blocks, click here.
