Take Control of Your Kids' TV Viewing with Parental Control

In addition to offering family-friendly channels, Time Warner Cable believes we have an important responsibility to provide the necessary tools and resources to manage your children’s use of television. With a Digital Cable set-top box, you can control what your kids can and cannot watch on TV - simply by using your remote control. Here’s what you can do:

  • Block by Rating: You can block any show that is rated TV-PG, TV-14 or TV-MA.
  • Block TV Shows and Series: If you feel a particular TV show or an entire series is unsuitable for your child, you can block all episodes.
  • Block Time Slots: Don’t want your children to watch a specific channel after 10:00 pm or during homework time? You can restrict access by time slot.
  • Block by Channel: Restrict access to entire channels that you do not want your children to watch without your permission, such as Spike and MTV.
  • Lift Restrictions So You Can Watch: Use your PIN anytime you want to turn off parental controls.
  • Change Your PIN: Change your PIN any time and as often as you wish.
