VUDU Movies parental controls

You can use Family Settings to control which movies and TV shows can be watched with the VUDU Movies app. For example, if your Family Settings prohibit R-rated movies and TV-MA shows from being watched on your console, this content will appear in the VUDU Movies app with a lock icon. To play a locked item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict access to movies and TV shows by using a pass code, please see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
