No. Blocking is done in the WebSafe control panel, link: https://my.virginmedia.com/my-apps/websafe/overview  login to it with your primary VM account add scroll down a bit, you'll see the option to add sites to the blocked list..

Edit: Forum software broke the link, fixed though now.

Re: Blocking pornography

If you want the belt and braces use a porno host blocking file as well http://www.hostsfile.org/Downloads/BadHosts.msw.zip

Re: Blocking pornography

I tried that by pressing your link. All it had were two options Child Safe and someting to do with virus checking. Both related to my computer not Virgin Porn channels on the computer. I am glad that they don't put reviews of porn on now but I would like to eradicate all possibilities of porn on my TV.

Re: Blocking pornography

If your TV has a built in freeview decoder (they all do after 2007), you'll need to block the adult channels.  The user manual should tell you how to do this, and also prevent them from showing up in the EPG.  They'll still be transmitted, but your TV will treat them as if they aren't there.  A factory reset or another first time tuning run will probably bring them back though.  A smart TV will need additional settings to be altered, if you have one.
