Adult VOD Folder Relocated Very Close to All Kids VOD Folder

Not sure if this is a result of the new IMG 1.6 update over the past few days in So. CA, but the ADULT VOD folder, previously located toward the bottom of the VOD folder list, has suddenly moved up to a more noticeable position, way too close to the ALL KIDS folder. The new folder order from the top now reads ALL KIDS -- ALL MOVIES & EVENTS -- BROADCAST PRIMETIME -- ADULT. My kids frequently browse and view offerings from the ALL KIDS folder; I'm not very comfortable having the ADULT folder so close within their view. Adding to the situation, with IMG 1.6 you no longer have to click on the main folder and wait several seconds for the next level of folders to open; now you just use the right arrow and the next hierarchy of folders display. This is a great new feature, but makes it even easier for the kids to stray where they shouldn't be going. Of course, we use the parental controls to prevent our children from ordering/viewing pornography, but just the titles and descriptions of the adult content is much too descriptive for their eyes. Shouldn't the FiOS programmers use better judgement in placing adult content so close to children's content?

There is something in Parental Controls that blocks all adult titles, I'm not sure if it works for VOD or not, try it and let us know.

I completely agree with you on this, and just noticed this change myself. The issue isn't whether or not my kids can order the content, I don't even want them browsing it, which they can do despite the parental lock. Ideally, there would be an option to not have access to the "Adult" content at all -- that is, it's not even listed. 

 

I'd really like to see Verizon remedy this issue.
