Netflix Have Just Improved Parental Controls

Netflix have just announced improvements to the parental control settings. You can already set a 4-digit PIN to allow access to titles over a certain age-range / maturity rating but what if there is something you don’t want your children watching even though it’s within their allowed maturity rating? Well, that’s what Netflix are adding – you can now PIN-protect specific shows regardless of maturity rating. The new feature appears to be rolling out gradually as I don’t have it on my UK account just yet.

If you head over to then you can set up your Parental Controls.

Another addition coming to Netflix is to show the maturity details at the start of a program for example when you start a movie it will show the maturity rating and the reason: “Rated PG; some mild, rude humour”
