How can I stop my children looking at/listening to unsuitable programmes?

Programmes that might be unsuitable for children should not be broadcast before 2100 or after 0530.

If a programme has been broadcast outside these times that you feel is unsuitable, you can complain to Ofcom using the online complaint form.

Many digital TV providers allow you to set controls which restrict specific channels or programmes.  If you are unsure how to activate your parental control features – or if you want to see whether your TV system has such a facility – check the TV system instructions booklet.

You can also phone your service provider, check their website or check with the original retailer.
