Watch Yahoo! Screen

Go to tv & movies, select My Video Apps, and then select Yahoo! Screen.

  1. From the Featured hub, you can watch any of the featured content displayed in the center, or access these:
    • watchlist - to view content you’ve marked to watch later.
  • history - to view content you’ve previously watched.

You can also navigate to Comedy, Entertainment, Gaming, Living, or Sports to browse content by genre.

  1. Select something to watch, and then select Play.

Use Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control what content can be watched through Xbox Live, the Yahoo! Screen app will follow these settings. For example, if unrated content is blocked in Family Settings, those programs will be marked with a "restricted video" icon in the Yahoo! Screen app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

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