How to choose maturity ratings or block shows

When you set a maturity rating for a profile, that profile will see only TV shows and movies that fit that rating. You can also block specific TV shows and movies from individual profiles.

  5. Set the maturity rating level for the TV shows and movies you want to allow in that profile.

  6. Select Save. TV shows and movies above the selected maturity level will be removed from the profile.
