Block Specific Shows By Title

So far as understand and have researched there is no current way to block shows by title.  Is this a function that can be requested to Products somehow?

 

I recently happened to be sitting in the room with my kid and a friend of his who were watching Amazing World of Gumball on Cartoon Network at 3pm.  I couldn't believe some skit that appeared about the concept of "Love", "Kissing" and the explanation that homosexuality is OK.

The episode was called "The Love".

 

Show content that like should be restricted to the evening with the other adult cartoons on this networkor the rating changed to TV14 at the least.  Indoctrinating children with concepts that should be dealt with by parents or school programs like Sex Ed should not be occuring on daytime cartoons.

Furthermore some of these cartoons appearing are so brain dead stupid I cannot believe they even air.

Hi Forum User,

 

Customers can block channels in the guide in a variety of ways using parental control.  Setting this up will filter the content that you select from being shown.  NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

 

1.) You will need to set up a Personalized Pin Number to use Parental Control Blocking Features.  You can block by Time, Content, Rating, Title, or any combination of these settings.

 

2.) You MUST turn on Parental Control for the blocking features to work!

 

Here is a link on how to use Parental Controls to block channels in several different ways from showing content that you may not want to see, or may not want your kids to view:

Hope this helps!

Furthermore, I would make a complaint with the network as they are the proprietor of that channel and control what airs and at what time.

Julia, Satch, and DSchroeder hit all of the points I think.  Well said.

Re: Block Specific Shows By Title

TWC claims that "Time Warner Cable TV comes with simple-to-use Parental Controls to block entire TV shows, series." This is not actually possible and it's false advertising. I'm surprised TWC hasn't been sued yet for false advertising.

The features allow you to block an entire channel. But that option is overkill. If I block channel 265 Disney XD because I don't want the kids watching shows like Gravity Falls (TV-Y7) or Future Worm (TV-Y7) then I'm also blocking things like Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures (TV-7) or Phineas and Ferb (TV-G) which I am ok with. Blocking programs by rating also poses the same problem.

Good morning. Below is a link to assist with setting up parental controls on your television. Shows can be blocked by title as opposed to the entire channel.
