    You can also go to the following hubs to browse content:

Using Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control the content that can be access on your console through Xbox Live, the Blip app will follow the settings you've established. For example, if you prohibit TV shows that are rated TV-MA from being viewed on your console, those programs will be marked with a "restricted video" icon in the Blip app. To play such content, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict Xbox Live content using a pass code, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
