Parental controls don't apply to TV watched through HDMI-in connections on Xbox One

Important

The online safety settings that are configured in Privacy and online safety on your Xbox One console do not apply to TV programming viewed through the OneGuide feature on your console.

To restrict the content that can be viewed through OneGuide, you must use content-control settings that are provided by your television service provider's cable or satellite box.
