then TV-Y7 will automatically be blocked.
Similarly, if you block the TV-G category, then all
the categories in the young adult group will be
blocked (TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA). The
sub-ratings (D, L, S, V) work similarly. So, if you
block the L sub-rating in TV-PG, then the L sub-
ratings in TV-14 and TV-MA will automatically be
blocked.
