Can you switch off the need for a PIN

My Mother in law is 93 and suffering from mild dementia.  The requirement for  PIN to watch a film on sky Cinema during the day is a complexity she cannot overcome. Surely there is a way of disabling this function so that no blocking of programmes.  ?  I can't see how in looking at settings.

Re: Can you switch off the need for a PIN

It's OFCOM enforcing the need for a PIN, otherwise only  PG/U films could be shown during the day.

So the requirement for a PIN on Sky Cinema can't be turned off I'm afraid.

Re: Can you switch off the need for a PIN

Hi Spakkaman,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community forums. @keithse is correct. Unfortunately this cannot be bypassed as it is an OFCOM regulation.

Cheers,
