Using 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 MOVIEPLEX Play app will follow those settings. For example, if you prohibit R-rated movies or TV-MA-rated TV shows from being watched on your console, those movies and shows will be marked in the MOVIEPLEX Play app with a Restricted icon. To play a locked item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

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