Application errors

  • Content Control Error
  • Your console Ratings system is not supported by the application. The application only supports U.S., Canada, British, New Zealand, Ireland, and Australian Ratings system. You can turn off content controls in Settings, Family.

If you get one of these error messages, it means that the content you're trying to view is rated according to a content ratings system that the IndieFlix app doesn't recognize.

The IndieFlix app uses only the U.S. film ratings system.

If you're in the U.S. region, make sure that your locale settings are set to United States.

If you're outside the U.S. region, you'll need to adjust your parental control settings to enable the app to function.

For information about how to change your locale, see Change your Xbox 360 console language.
