Using Parental Control Tools

The TV Parental Guidelines work in conjunction with the V-Chip and other parental control tools to allow parents to block programming they don’t want their children to see. V-Chips in television sets and parental control tools offered by cable and satellite providers each work a little bit differently. Instructions for programming your television’s V-Chip can be found in the on-screen menu option or in the television owner’s manual. Additionally, the links below provide both general and step-by-step instructions for programming and utilizing parental control tools.
