What are Parental Controls?

Parental Controls allow you to manage your children’s viewing and restrict access to certain channels. Once set, Parental Controls won’t allow you to watch a recording of a guidance rated programme before the watershed without first entering a four digit PIN.

By default, your Box’s PIN is set to 0000, but you can change this by selecting the Set a PIN option within the Parental Controls menu. You will also need this PIN to factory reset your Box.

Many On Demand services come with their own parental control settings, these operate separately from the PIN you have set on your Box. Where available, you can choose to enable these settings directly through the services on your Box or online, depending on the service provider.
