About Parental Controls

Parental Controls allow you to regulate what your kids are able to watch on TV or access online. Parental Controls are managed separately for your Spectrum Receiver, the Spectrum TV App, SpectrumTV.com and TV channel apps. Learn more about managing your Parental Control settings below.



On Your TV


  • You can block specific programs based on channel, rating restrictions, or air date and time. Select the Guide you use for further instructions.
  • If you use a CableCARD, you'll need to set parental controls using your TV.




  • You can set Spectrum email Parental Controls to restrict what email addresses users can send mail to and receive mail from.
  • You can set Online Safety/Parental Controls through Security Suite to protect users from harmful or unsuitable content.


 On the Spectrum TV App


  • You can limit access to the Spectrum TV App by enabling Parental Controls in the Settings menu.
