PARENTAL LOCK IMPROVEMENT TO PROTECT KIDS

Status: Open
by Edz209 on ‎17-02-2017 20:55

Hi just a thought that perhaps the folks at Now tv will consider to implement.
Anyone who has kids and now tv will probably use the parental lock feature.

This works fine, however, with regards to the horror films which crop up in the JUST ADDED section, the movie poster images are pretty freaky and I'd imagine scary to some kids.

After all kids use Now tv too and need to be protected as well.
I suggest frosting out the image to match the level of security used by the parental lock.

Thanks for reading and I hope this idea is considered further.

I actually like your idea of frosting/blurring out images according to rating. I think some people might find it annoying though (the adults) when browsing through lists so i think if its implimented it needs to be an optional/additional option of the parental pin feature maybe.

 

Great idea though, hopefully somebody will move it to the idea forum for you later Smiley Happy

 

I'm still hoping parental pin is improved too. It should protect the box as a whole.. it should really be able to lock apps/stop children using them and installing/unistalling them. You can protect your children from watching content in nowtv app but every other app on the box is open to them.

could be a good idea, but I agree it would need to be optional. If it was implemented

@Edz209,

 

Would you prefer your original topic about the same subject moved into this Kids sub-section instead of the Cinema sub-section?

 

And can you please refrain from using ALL CAPITOL LETTERS in your topic titles as it is considered SHOUTING, which is very rude.

 

 

Many thanks

This is an essential feature;   my 8 year old son asked me how he could stop the horror images appearing in the menu.   Unfortunately there is no way currently.   

 

Listing family movies; disney and pixar - side by side with Horror is a bit of an own goal by NowTv.

NowTv could:

have an area under 'my account' where you choose what menus are visible.
have menus locked unless a pin is entered e.g   the title of the menu is shown but no images; then when if someone wants to browse the category  they have to enter the pin.

and of course the other suggestions on this thread.

I didn't think I'd be the only one who has kids that thought this made sense.
Thanks for the support, let's hope tech guys can implement.

DEfo an issue for me as my son who is 3 was sitting with his sister aged 8 who was looking under family and again new added films come up even if you go on horror by accident we should be able to pin it out - my boy witnessed a film cover and we have now gone back to nappies as petrified...im even considering leaving now tv because of it. A simple thing which should be dealt with. And why i keep getting asking for a pin to watch cbeebies programs???
