    • Hide SD duplicate channels will automatically hide any standard-definition channels that are also present in an HD version.

OneGuide and family safety

OneGuide does not enforce content limits you've associated with your Xbox One profile. If you want to configure parental controls on your TV, you should do so on your cable box. Or, contact your cable or satellite provider if you have questions.

OneGuide does filter explicit titles and descriptions. This setting is on by default for all accounts. To view or change this setting, go to Settings, and then select Privacy and online safety.
