Learn how to set up Parental Controls on your Shaw Digital Box. By configuring the Parental Control Settings on your digital box, you can limit what kind of content can be viewed by those individuals who do not have access to the PIN (Password). You can limit this content based on its ratings (PG, Mature, Unrated), or by the channel on which it appears. By setting Parental Lock codes, you can control what kinds of programming your family has access to.  Depending on your cable box, you can block access to specific types of TV content: Violence, Suggestive Dialogue, Sexual Situations, and Language.
