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, the NBA Game Time app will follow these 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 NBA Game Time app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict movies and TV shows using a pass code, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360.
