Adult Content Menu Example

Hide Adult Content Logo

Keep adult stuff for just the adults.

Sometimes spice is best kept in the cabinet, so we've added a "Hide Adult Content" menu. Now your spicy channels, titles, descriptions, and artwork can be safely tucked away on your TiVo. The Hide Adult Content setting is turned on by default if the Parental Controls feature is on. Turn this feature on or off by going to:

TiVo Central > Settings & Messages > Parental Controls > Hide Adult Content.
