Parental Controls

Is it possible to turn off the parental controls which keep asking me for my PIN whenever I select a movie with an age rating, depending upon the time of day?  I do have kids but don't feel I need this service.  I cannot see anyway of disabling this service/setting, please advise if it is possible?

Re: Parental Controls

It cannot be disabled. It is an OFCOM requirement that the PIN is activated in order to allow Sky Movies to show restricted films out of watershed. Sky & any provider that wholesales' the channels must have PIN activation 'locked on' irrespective of what the customer has set on their equipment. If Virgin allowed you to change this they would be in breach their operating licence.
