Use Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control the movies and TV shows that can be watched through your console, the UVideos app will follow these settings. For example, if you prohibit watching of TV-MA-rated TV shows on your console, those programs will be marked with a "Restricted Video" icon in the UVideos app. To play a locked item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict access to Xbox Live content using Family Settings, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
