If you use Family Settings to control which films and TV programmes can be watched through Xbox Live on your console, the FOXTEL app will follow those settings. For example, if you prohibit programmes with certain ratings from being watched on your console, those shows will be marked in the FOXTEL app with a restricted icon. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.
For more information about how to control access to Xbox Live content by using Family Settings, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
