Introducing Parental Controls
NOTE: Controls must first be set up in Settings before the Parental Controls on/off button will appear on the Menubar.
Parental controls let you turn on and off all parental controls for your service. With Parental Controls on, the kids can watch TV without you constantly worrying they may see something inappropriate. With parental controls off, adults can watch their programs without repeatedly entering a password.
When Parental Controls are on, titles of programs that exceed your parental control settings will not be shown. Once Parental Controls are turned off, all program titles will be shown.
