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, the TwitchTV app will follow those settings. For example, if you prohibit TV-MA-rated TV shows from being watched on your console, those movies and shows will be marked in the TwitchTV app with a “restricted” icon. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to control access to Xbox Live content by using Family Settings, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
