Family Programming

More family-friendly programming now on our lineup.
Parental controls for Internet and TV.

Our family-friendly lineup just got better. We’ve added more programming choices, so whether you’re looking for stay-cation entertainment, holiday amusement, or just TV time that’s quality family time, we’ve got something for teens, ‘tweens and little ones. We make our family-friendly options easy to find… and the rest, easy to block.

Fill out this form to receive more information about our family-friendly viewing options. We’ll even include a small gift from your friends at Bright House Networks. (While information is always available from Bright House Networks, this special offer of a small gift is good only while supplies last. Items may take 4-6 weeks to mail.)

Parental Controls

Be the boss without being the bad guy. With our free Parental Controls for TV and Internet, you can easily avoid the “because I said so” routine. This free feature allows you to block programming you don’t want your kids to see on your TV or with the Bright House TV app. Choose the option that works best for you. Block by rating, by content advisory, by channel. Block specific shows, series or time slots. The programming you don’t want your kids to see becomes a non-issue. And, it’s easy to lift these restrictions as the kids get older or to watch a parents-only program.

Plus, our free McAfee Family Protection® offers online channel blocking and you can filter out explicit music on iTunes, restrict YouTube video, block digital music file sharing as well as unwanted emails. Learn more.
