- At least 70 megabytes (MB) of available storage space.

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, the c|net app will follow these settings. For example, if you prohibit TV-MA-rated TV shows from being watched on your console, those programs will be marked with a "restricted video" icon in the c|net app. To play a locked item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.
For more information about how to restrict movies and TV shows using a pass code, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
