Can I lock iPlayer?

Is it possible to lock the iPlayer on a Tivo 6 box?

I don't want my children being able to access the iPlayer whenever they like. I've been able to lock Netflix but that's on it's own channel. I'd like the same function for the BBC iPlayer

As you have to sign on to gain access to iPlayer now, can’t you just sign off so your kids can’t get access?

You can do this, but bear in mind all you need to create a new account is an email address. The sign in is designed to tailor content to the user & help prevent licence fee fraud more than for parental control.
