Hi, I’m Ryan. Let me show you how to view parental guide information for a show and, if desired, limit the programming that your children can watch on your Hopper. Let’s begin with the parental guide.

Highlight a show that’s in the guide, your DVR, or On Demand, and then press the Info button. Then, navigate to the Parental Guide tab to view the parental rating, a description of the show, and how much violence, educational value, and more is included.

If you would like to limit the programming your children can watch, select the Settings tile from your Hopper’s menu. Then select “Parental Controls.”

Here, you can turn on parental controls by creating a four-digit code.

Then you can restrict purchases, hide adult programs, lock and hide certain channels, and more. This is a great tool to ensure everything your children are watching is age-appropriate.

Thanks for watching, and I’ll see you next time.
