TV Everywhere Parental Controls
Important: Parental controls are not set by default. This means all content is available for viewing until you apply controls based on your preferences.
Parental controls let you filter programs, so your children can only watch and record content you approve as suitable for them.
This page covers parental controls for select TV Everywhere network apps: HBO GO®, MAX GO®, FX®, FXM, ABC and Freeform.1 App access varies based on the TV Everywhere networks available in your respective cable TV package.
- Other parental controls are available for TiVo® devices, DVRs and digital receivers, and HD digital adapters. If you have multiple equipment types, you may need to follow instructions for each.
- Parental controls are not available for standard digital adapters or CableCARDs.
Block by Ratings in Streaming Apps
If your TV package includes TV Everywhere access to network apps for HBO GO®, MAX GO®, FX®, FXM, ABC and Freeform, you can limit content based on movie and TV ratings of content in those apps.
Because access can be blocked by specific email address, you can apply different controls based on various Midco email accounts you’ve set up for TV Everywhere, so you can have different rules for you and your kids.
