Use Family Safety settings to control Hulu Plus access

If you use Family Settings to control which movies and TV shows can be watched through Xbox Live on your console, the Hulu Plus app will follow those settings. For example, if you use parental controls to restrict some kinds of TV programs, those programs will be marked with a "restricted" icon in the Hulu Plus app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to control access to movies and TV shows on Xbox Live by using a pass code, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
