Top Parental Control Features
Block a TV show, series or channel
Feel a particular show or series is inappropriate? You can block one episode, an entire series and individual channels. If you watch with TWC TV, manage your Parental Control settings online online in My Account.
Block by rating
Block any show rated TV-PG, TV-14 or TV-MA. It’s a broader solution to help you filter programming that you feel is too mature for your kids.
Block by time slots
Use TV Parental Controls to restrict access by time slot – and make sure dinner, homework and bedtime won’t become TV time.
Lift restrictions anytime
Use your PIN any time you want to turn off Parental Controls. This way you can enjoy the shows you want when you want.
Parental Control FAQs
How can I control what my child watches?
Help your kids find quality programming with the Guide, and use Parental Controls to block programs you don’t want them to watch. Note: TV Parental Controls settings do not affect online or device Parental Controls and must be configured independently.
What Parental Controls are offered?
You can set up blocks according to a show’s channel, rating, time period or title to help control the programs your children watch on TV. Please note that setting parental controls on your TV equipment is separate from the parental controls that you would set via TWC TV® for watching online, on a smartphone or on a tablet.
What is a V-Chip?
A V-Chip electronically reads television program ratings. This device, built into most new TV sets, allows parents to block programs they don’t want their children to see. V-Chipped TVs will display the V-Chip option on the television’s menu. Check with your TV manufacturer if you are not sure whether your set has one.
