The two largest satellite
services have different parental controls that you can use.
DirecTV’s Locks and Limits
feature allows you to block by MPAA ratings, specific movies, and
entire channels, as well as to set limited viewing times and establish
spending limits on Pay-Per-View.
- Press the menu button on
your remote, select Profiles, and look for the selections which
indicate Rating Limit, Lock User, Viewing Hours or Spending Limit.
- Follow the
easy-to-understand on-screen directions, which vary by receiver.
- After setting up, you can
easily access the programming you like by entering your PIN.
DISH Network subscribers must
use the v-chip to block television programs according to their rating.
Additionally, you can block adult channels using their Adult Guard
feature, found in the Locks menu.
