Using Family Settings to control access to content

If you are using Family Settings to control which films and TV programmes can be watched, IGN content follows these settings. For example, if you prohibit particular TV shows from being watched on your console, those programmes will appear in the IGN app with a "restricted video" icon. To play a locked item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict films and TV shows using a pass code, please see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
