Re: New Mandatory Pin

Find it really frustrating. No need for this. As I have children older than 17!

 

I do use pin but for adult content only. And purchases only.

 

Please go back..

Re: New Mandatory Pin

Mine's just been activated.

 

It's quite funny having to enter a PIN to watch ET or The Jungle Book in my flat where I have lived alone for many years.

 

I would suggest that they should only show 15 films after 7pm and 18 films after 9pm like terrestrial TV - as anybody who wants to watch them outside these times can stream them - but I can see that would be a problem for the Sci-Fi and Horror stream.

 

I suppose there is some OFCOM related legalities going on that I can't be bothered to familiarise myself with.

 

I just changed my PIN to 1111 so I can just press the OK button four times.

Re: New Mandatory Pin

We've introduced a mandatory PIN on some live Sky channels to make sure we’re doing as much we can to make our service more responsible. It also offers our customers more choice to watch content that normally might not be available before the traditional ‘watershed’ – the time when TV programmes that might be unsuitable for children are broadcast.

 

If you’ve got a Sky Cinema Pass, you can turn off the Parental PIN but you’ll still need to enter your PIN to watch some live Sky Cinema channels. But you won’t need to enter it for on-demand movies, or for most of our Passes.
