Sky has launched a new Kids Safe Mode on Sky Q that will provide a safe space for kids to watch child-friendly TV at home.
The new setting will allow parents to lock their Sky Q box in the Kids section, by simply selecting the setting and entering their TV PIN. Once activated, all non-kids’ content including live TV channels, recordings, on-demand shows and apps will be blocked.
Kids Safe Mode is the latest feature being rolled out as part of Sky’s commitment to ensure children are safe whilst watching TV and spending time online. Stephen van Rooyen, Chief Executive UK & Ireland commented: “At Sky, we go further than anyone else to ensure we put families first when developing our services. Sky Q’s new Kids Safe Mode is a super simple way for parents to have ultimate peace of mind when their children are watching TV.”
Kids Safe Mode will also be joined by a new parents guide set to launch later this year from Sky and Common Sense Media to help parents make more informed choices about what their children watch.
