BBC iPlayer parental control

BBC iPlayer on Xbox Live provides access to a broad range of BBC programmes, some of which may be unsuitable for younger viewers.

To help you control access to BBC content on your Xbox 360 console, the BBC iPlayer app enables you to set a personal identification number (PIN) or password to restrict access to certain programmes. This helps ensure that children and younger viewers in your household can view only content that is appropriate for them.

Note Your Xbox Family Settings PIN does not control access to content within the BBC iPlayer app — you must set up a unique BBC iPlayer parental control PIN or password.

For more information about PIN/password access, read the FAQ section, located in the Parental Guidance hub under the Help & Setting link.
