What are parental controls?


Parental controls allow you to control the type of content children are allowed to watch – ensuring they can’t watch programmes or recordings that may not be age appropriate, for example.

If you try to watch a programme that was recorded post-watershed at a time that is pre-watershed then you will be asked to enter your PIN. Find out your default pin.

If you forget your pin then you will need to reset the box which will also reset your stored recordings. To avoid losing your recordings, we advise that you take care to choose a memorable number when changing or resetting your PIN.
