Blocking programs by ratings

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) uses a rating
system to qualify motion picture content. Television broadcasters
employ a similar rating system to qualify the content of television
programs. The MPAA, Youth TV, and TV ratings work with the
V-Chip feature to allow you to block access to programs that exceed
the rating limits you set.

For adults only.
NC17
Not intended for anyone 17 or under.
R
Restricted. Under 17 requires an accompanying
parent or adult guardian.
PG13
Parents strongly cautioned. Some material may
not be appropriate for children under 13.
PG
Parental guidance suggested. Some material
may not be appropriate for children.
G
General audience. Appropriate for all ages.
Youth TV Ratings

Directed to older children. Programs rated Y7
are designed for children 7 and above.

that may be more intense or combative than

to be appropriate for all children.
