Hi. I was wondering if the parental controls apply to the watch live TV settings. My 15 year old has a box in his room and i am worried he is accessing the likes of Geordie shore via the watch live tv section. Altrnatively is there a way of disabling the watch live tv section.


Hi @zozster

 

As far as I'm aware. NowTV's parental controls don't currently apply to the live channels. @Tony-D will correct me if I'm wrong. Unfortunately, there is currently no way of disabling the live TV section


@zozster I'm aftraid @commanda6 is right in that we disable the Live TV section. If anything, Geordie Shore should put him off Live TV so it could be a good deterrant haha 🙂

Re: Bad Age ratings on nearly all shows, even PG showing as 18+

This is still a problem as of 22.05.18. My twins are almost 15 and I have parental control set to 18. But as big fans of Modern Family I am finding that I have to constantly enter my pin. I have seen that this was a problem back in 2013. Am I to believe that Now TV haven't yet found a solution to this? Especially, as they can select a movie under the 18 rating and it will contain more swearing and violence than I would consider appropriated for their age.

How the hell can Tom and Jerry be regarded as over 18R ?!

Re: Everything's 18+

Yes it's ridiculous. Nearly ALL the boxsets are 18! This is a serious error on the marketing front. I signed up partly for my teenage children and I'll be cancelling soon because there's almost nothing for the 12-15s.

Have they actually done anything about this, I’ve started using Now TV and 3/4 years on this still seems to be a problem.

To be honest it’s something I’ve always noticed but genuinely don’t care what rating the content is. 
All I’ve cared about is the content being available. 

If it’s only consolation the Sky Go app doesn’t show ratings for TV shows, only films.

 

Youll see my two screenshots where the film has the rating in this case X-Men First Class rated 12 and nothing for Modern Family.
