How does Netflix decide maturity ratings?

Each TV show and movie on Netflix is assigned a maturity rating to help members make informed choices for themselves and their children. Maturity ratings are either determined by Netflix or by a local standards organization. Netflix determines maturity ratings by the frequency and impact of mature content in a TV show or movie. TV show ratings reflect the overall maturity level of the whole series.

The local TV and movie ratings that fall under each Netflix maturity level may vary by region. In your country, Netflix uses the following TV and movie ratings:

Kids

Teen

Adult

TV-Y, TV-Y7, G, TV-G, PG, TV-PG

PG-13, TV-14

R, TV-MA, NC-17

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

That profile will show only TV shows and movies that fit the selected maturity rating level. You can also block specific shows and movies from individual profiles.
