    Note blinkbox content can be viewed on up to five devices linked to your blinkbox account. A user can watch a title (within its licence timeframe) on up to five devices – as long as playback is not happening simultaneously.

Use Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control which movies and TV shows can be watched through Xbox Live on your console, the blinkbox app will follow those settings. For example, if you use parental controls to restrict access to some kinds of TV programs, those programs will be marked with a “restricted” icon in the blinkbox app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict access to Xbox Live content by using Family Settings, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
