You can find a title’s maturity rating:

  • When first playing a title, the rating will appear briefly in the top corner of your screen.

  • On a TV show or movie’s details page. The location of this information may vary by device.

In addition to the rating, you’ll also find details about the content of the title that determined the rating (for example: sex, language, drugs, nudity).

To set a maturity rating level for a profile, go to Profile and Parental Controls, choose a profile, and select Viewing Restrictions.

Profiles with a set maturity level will only show titles that fit the selected maturity rating level. You can also block specific shows and movies from individual profiles.
