Parental Controls on Streaming Services

Sometimes I take for granted the fact that I have no kids in the home to have to be careful around, but for those of you that do here’s a pretty good run down of the parental services provided by some of the most popular streaming services.

On the playground the other day, parents were swapping stories about movies they recently saw on Netflix and Amazon Instant. We all enjoy watching movies through our Rokus, Apple TVs or other streaming boxes. During the conversation, one parent stated how a friend had challenges enabling parental controls with one of the streaming services. Streaming services use cutting-edge technology to deliver video to your living room; however, for some providers, parental controls have been an afterthought. Tech of the Hub looked at the parental controls offered by the popular streaming services on the market, including Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, iTunes, Netflix and VUDU.
