My TV service has recently started requesting a pin for certain shows I've recorded or want to watch after 9pm. I have not set this and I have doubled checked my settings. How do I remove this? I do not have any children, it's extremely irritating.
Sky Comedy and Sky Documentaries now have mandatory PIN protection in the same way that Sky Cinema has. These channels have started to show age rating restricted shows outside their normal watershed hours. This was allowed by OFCOM recently for non premium channels.
This PIN protection also applies to recordings too and can't be turned off. The rating rules are as follow for PIN protection:
Thanks I appreciate your response. I have to say I find it quite offensive that they have decided to force this on everyone whether they have children or not. Why can't they give you the option as they do with the general parental controls? Surely we can make those decisions ourselves and shouldn't be forced to take actions that only apply to those with children. This has made me really quite angry.
