I'm not saying Verizon should force anything on thier subscribers.  I'm not saying they should remove any programming.  I'm saying they should provide the tools so subscribers can make the choices that are right for them.

 

Verizon has not provided the tools.

 

(Ironicly, the TV rating system was created so parents had the tools to parent their children.)

I can understand that turning off and on Parental Controls is annoying but I find the easiest thing to do is select Hide Adult Info in the Advanced Settings.

Once that is done it will show Blocked Title in the Guide. Unfortunately it also blocks TV-MA. It’s very easy to turn on and off by hitting Options on the remote and OK on Parental Controls from there use can toggle on and off. 

Off of course requires the pin and you can select Turn off permanently or for 4 hours.

I appreciated the suggestions, but turning something on and off on a regular basis and continuously tracking whether or not it is on or off, is not really what users are asking for here.

 

They have the software programming in the cable box to block watching shows on a specific channel.  They have the programming to block the text describing specific kinds of programs.  Adding software programming to block the text on a specific channel would be an easy addition, that would satisfy a valid and long standing request.
