Superior Parental Controls From DirecTV

By: David Johnson

It has been a great concern and is a growing concern formany parents, of children of all ages, that their children will stumble acrossinappropriate content on television when the parent is not around.?? It is almost impossible nowadays for aparent to be around the house long enough to keep an eye on all of the programsthat their child watches.? This is mostlybecause most households have either single parents or a situation where bothspouses have 40 hour a week jobs around the same parts of the day.?? The option of bringing in a nanny or dailybabysitter is unavailable to most families because of how expensive it tends tobe.?? However, even if this was possible,who can say if the nanny will really pay close enough attention to the programsyour child watches or even if he or she will care enough to keep them fromit.? One thing is for certain, nobodyknows better what is best for their own child than themselves.?? You can not trust someone else with the taskof deciding what kind of content is appropriate for your child orchildren.?? This has also been a greatproblem because of the lack of parental control options with cabletelevision.? Cable television has thetelevision rating system, of course.?

The ratings such as TV-Ma and TV-14 were obviously createdwith the right idea in mind.? However,studies have shown that a child is much more likely to seek out channels withthose ratings to find inappropriate content out of curiosity, than to avoidthem for fear of running into such content.??Now many parents may feel that their child would never do such a thing,which of course may be true.? However, asinnocent and good a child may be, a natural sense of curiosity in a child witha developing mind can often times override a sense of protecting their owninnocence.??

All of this has been taken closely into consideration byDirecTV when they developed their superior parental control features.? With DirecTV, a subscriber will find that theparental controls are extremely easy to use with many great features.?? With this awesome parental control feature,the parent will find that they can actually lock out channels at certain timesof the day or even lock out a channel entirely.?As every television viewer knows, there are some channels that are fullof gratuitous sex and violence from morning to night.? On the other hand, however, there are somechannels that air programs with real merit during the day, whereas you never knowwhat might come on after ten o clock.??This is why you have the option, with DirecTV’s parental controls, tolock a channel either at certain times, or “permanently".??

Of course, with this system, even the “permanently" blockedchannels can be unlocked, if you have the password that is.? That is right, you will not have to worryabout your technologically savvy child getting into your parental controlfeature and changing settings.? With thistotally fool proof password protection, you can be sure that your child will besafe from a lot of the gratuitous sexual and violent material that plagues thetelevision airwaves today!
