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 on your console, STARZ Play 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 programs will be marked in the STARZ Play app with a ”restricted” icon. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.
