Set Viewing Restrictions on Fire TV

Viewing restrictions let you specify whether your Fire TV can play movies and TV shows in certain ratings categories.

Fire TV parental controls include viewing restrictions you can use to block playback of movies and TV shows from Prime Video (including videos Included with Prime and programming from your Amazon Channels subscriptions) as well as selected third-party providers (including Crackle, Encore, Food Network, HGTV, Hulu, Showtime, and Travel Channel).

Note: Viewing restrictions do not apply to movies and TV shows you watch directly within a third-party provider's related app. Parental controls for third-party apps are determined by the provider.

Set Viewing Restrictions

To set viewing restrictions on your Fire TV:

  1. Select Settings from Fire TV menu and open Preferences.

  2. Select Parental Controls.

    Tip: If you already have parental controls turned on, enter your PIN when prompted. Otherwise, you'll see an option to turn on parental controls to access additional options.

  3. Select Viewing Restrictions.

  4. Choose the ratings categories you'd like to restrict for your Fire TV. Use the Select Select Button 
				button on your Fire TV remote to make your selection(s).

Ratings Categories

Each ratings category includes a description that combines TV and movie ratings with recommended audiences, organized by level:

General (General Audiences G, TV-G, TV-Y) - Videos suitable for General Audiences.

Family (PG, NR Family, TV-Y7, TV-Y7-FV, TV-PG) - Videos suitable for General Audiences and older children.

Teen (Teens and Young Adults PG 13, TV 14) - Videos suitable for General Audiences, Family, Teens, and Young Adults.

Mature (No Restrictions R, NC-17, TV-MA, Unrated, Not rated) - All videos, including those not rated or for mature audiences.

Once you set viewing restrictions, a "lock" Parental Controls Lock 
			 symbol and "viewing restrictions apply" messaging displays next to titles with ratings in your restricted categories. If you try to start watching one of these titles, you're prompted to enter your parental controls PIN.
