We know you and your family want to watch the latest hit movies, but
may not be comfortable with some of the content (violence, sex, swearing, substance
abuse.). That’s why we’ve introduced Family Play, a new way to watch your
favorite movies while choosing the content you’d like to skip over or mute.
CHOOSE WHAT TO SKIP
When watching eligible movies, Family Play lets you skip over scenes or
lines that you’ve decided don’t align with your values or aren’t appropriate
for your family. Family Play puts the power in your hands by letting you select
specific content types like Language, Violence, and Sex/Nudity that you would
like to seamlessly skip over, while leaving everything else the same.
If you’re ok with your kids hearing some harsh language but don’t want
them seeing depictions of drug use, you can turn on the Substance Abuse option
while leaving Language alone. If you want to enjoy the latest mystery thriller
with all of the suspense but none of the fighting or sexuality, the Violence
and Sex/Nudity buttons are there for you. If the kids have gone to bed halfway
through the movie and you don’t mind the adult content, just pause the movie, turn
off Family Play, and resume the movie from the same place you stopped without
any skips. Family Play gives you options to take charge of your viewing
experience based on preferences and who is watching.
Because skips and mutes are determined based on a number of different
contextual factors, viewer discretion is still advised. If you have questions
or concerns about content that was not skipped or muted, you can contact our
Customer Care team at 888-554-8838.
PIN-PROTECTED FOR YOUR FAMILY
Even when you’re not monitoring, Family Play can help protect your kids
from the content you don’t want them to see. Setting an optional 4-digit Pin to
exit Family Play means the settings you’ve selected will stay on while your
kids are enjoying Family Play eligible movies from your collection on their
Family Play is set-up separately on each device, so you can set a PIN
on devices that are for family use while having no PIN, different settings, or
no Family Play at all on your personal devices.
