Parental Controls

It’s not always easy for kids to make the right choices when it comes to picking an appropriate TV show or website, and Time Warner Cable understands the challenges that parents face every day in trying to monitor what their children watch. Together with PointSmartClickSafe.org, CommonSenseMedia.org and ControlYourTV.org, Time Warner Cable is dedicated to providing you with the most up to date resources available to help keep your family safe from inappropriate and harmful viewing content. Time Warner Cable takes your family’s safety as seriously as you do, and have developed a system of Parental Controls that are easy to use and all at no additional cost to you.

Parental Controls Let You Manage What Your Family Watches

The wide range of TV and internet content that is available can be misleading, and your children are at risk of being exposed to harmful or inappropriate media without constant and rigid monitoring practices in place. The Parental Controls available from Time Warner Cable can be set through your Digital set top box, and you can regulate exactly what your children can have access to as well as block unwanted programming and setting your programming preferences is as easy as using your remote control.

There are several options available for setting your parental controls:

Ratings: You can block any programming that is rated TV-PG and higher. TV-14 or TV-MA can be blocked along with TV-PG or individually, it is up to you to decide what is appropriate for your family.

TV Series or Individual Shows: Whether it is a particular episode or the entire series, you have the ability to control and block an entire season or particular episodes.

Channels: Any channels that you don’t want your children to watch can be blocked along with any channels that you are undecided about. You can block a channel until you have had a chance to see what type of program is scheduled to be aired.

Time Slots: Control channel access by blocking them during specific hours, like after a particular time at night or even during homework time.

The Time Warner Cable Parental Controls are easy to use and adjust. When you want to watch TV, you can lift the controls by using your pre-set PIN, and there is no limit on the number of times that you can change your PIN to ensure total security and complete control over everything that your family has access to on TV or online.
