Parental Controls

You set the boundaries

Set limits on your kids’ TV time with easy-to-use tools and helpful resources. Block TV programming at your discretion — by channel, rating, genre and time of day — with a Time Warner Cable Set-Top Box.


Top Parental Controls Features

Block a TV show, series or channel
Feel a particular show or series is inappropriate? You can block with your remote control and Set-Top Box by time, title, channel, content and rating. Please note each cable Set-Top Box has its own unique Parental Controls settings and that those settings do not carry over to TWC TV® Parental Controls.  

Block by rating
Block any show rated TV-PG, TV-14 or TV-MA. It’s a broader solution to help you filter programming that you feel is too mature for your kids.

Block by time slots
Use TV Parental Controls to restrict access by time slot - and make sure dinner, homework and bedtime won’t become TV time.

Lift restrictions anytime
Use your PIN any time you want to turn off Parental Controls. This way you can enjoy the shows you want when you want.

Block channels for the TWC TV® app
If you watch with the TWC TV® app, you can manage online in My Account your Parental Controls settings for your devices. Please note that settings on your cable Set-Top Box do not carry over to TWC TV®. These Parental Controls settings are separate.
