How To Setup Parental Controls With HBO GO Through A Computer?

HBO is a world-renowned platform for having the maximum number of blockbuster movies, documentaries, and special TV series. Where most of the content is meant for an entire family, there is certain content, which is kept away from kids would be better. In order to protect children from profanity, nudity, and gore, parents opt for parental controls.

Technicalbulls
HBO streamline its content via two of its services, HBO GO and HBO Now. HBO GO is an application that users will have to subscribe to in order to watch their favorite movies, documentaries, and TV shows, etc.
While parents want their children to be entertained, but there is certain content, which is bad for children, and therefore, it must be prevented from reaching them. Parents can easily find movie ratings and TV ratings on the web, and based on those ratings, they can set up parental controls.
It is possible for parents to set maximum rating for TV shows and movies separately. Turn on the parental controls and feel relieved because when children play a movie or a TV show whose rating exceeds the maximum allowed rating, then they are going to see a message in which it is clearly mentioned that the ‘access is restricted by parental controls’.
Let us discuss an example, if you allow the maximum rating for TV shows to TV-PG and PG-13 for movies respectively, then the TV shows and movies with ratings above TV-PG and PG-13 respectively can’t be played.

How to create or change parental controls

There are three places from which parental controls can be changed. These are; HBO GO website, TV provider and the device on which you are using the app. You can get in touch with the TV provider or follow the instructions that are given on the official website to know how to set up parental controls. In case, parental controls are supported by your TV provider, then you may have to set parental controls with the TV provider instead of going to HBOGO.com or using HBO GO app. Here is how you can set or change parental controls in HBO Go app.

PC/Laptop

  1. The first thing for you to do is, open the web browser and visit HBOGO.com. Then, log into your primary account, as setting up parental controls will not be possible with a sub-account.
  2. Click HBO GO ID in the top-right corner followed by clicking parental controls. You will see a message leading you to set parental controls with the TV provider (only possible if your TV provider supports parental controls).
  3. If you are unable to see that message, then move onto the next step.
  4. Select the maximum ratings that are allowed for TV and movies. In case, you are having sub-accounts, then set controls for each of those accounts one by one. The defaults are TV-MA (unrestricted) and NC-17 (unrestricted).
  5. Perform one of the below mentioned.
  • Create a PIN: If you are setting up parental controls for the first time, then enter a PIN and confirm it. Then, click ‘enable parental controls’. Enter your email ID so that you can retrieve your PIN if forgotten at some point  time in the future.
  • Type in your PIN: If you have a PIN, then enter it followed by clicking ‘save changes’. In case, you forgot the PIN, then go to the official HBO Go site to know how to change or reset the PIN.
This is how you can set up parental controls in your HBO Go account on your PC/laptop. If you come across any issue in any of the above-mentioned steps, then you can get in touch with HBOGO help and support providers.

What’s The Way of Deleting Recently Watched on Netflix?

Technical bulls

Netflix’s search option is not that great, and many users would agree to this. But, things can be sorted out by deleting recently watched content on Netflix, which is exactly what we are going to discuss in this blog post.

Technical bulls

Netflix may be good at a number of things, but when it comes to content discovery, a significant improvement needs to be made. I don’t know whether I’m the only one who is facing problems while searching for new enjoyable stuff in the company’s library or there are many like me who are facing the same problem.

I think there has to be a significant amount of Netflix users who are not satisfied with the search functionality. It is not easy to find new content to watch, which sucks because Netflix is all about entertainment, and when aren’t able to find new entertainment on the platform, then they leave the platform with nothing but disappointment.

Users instead of following the straight and simple path to finding the new content are forced to take help of not so user-friendly secret codes. Netflix should do something in order to make this a lot easier otherwise get ready to lose some customers.

Ideally, one shouldn’t be using the codes because after all, he/she is using a world-class streaming service, which is supposed to offer all the offers on a platter, but that doesn’t seem to the case. Netflix apps have a list of recommended shows, which are generated by the sophisticated algorithms, which keeps track of the videos that a user has watched already.

But, this feature can’t be used when two or more people are using one Netflix profile. I don’t understand how Netflix missed this drawback, but it is what it is. Though the algorithm to analyze watched videos is sophisticated, but it is not that difficult to make it confused.

But, there is one way through which things can be brought back on the right track. It is possible for a user to remove the shows that he/she has watched. He/she will have to go the Netflix history and remove the shows from there. With this, he/she can avoid the algorithms from considering previously watched content when recommending any new content.

What is the process of deleting recently watched on Netflix?

Here are the steps that will be brought into use if a user wants to remove shows from the Netflix’s recently watched list.

  1. The first step is to go to Netflix.com followed by clicking on ‘Sign in’.
  2. Type in Netflix username and password, and click ‘sign in’.
  3. The user will have to open his/her primary account
  4. Click the small arrow, which is given in the upper right corner of the screen.
  5. The user will see a drop-down menu from which, he/she will have to select ‘account’.
  6. Then, he/she will have to go to ‘my profile’ followed by ‘viewing activity’.
  7. He/she is going to see the shows’ list that he/she has watched so far.
  8. He/she will have to click on ‘X’, which is given right next to the show’s name in order to remove a particular content.

It is also possible for the user to edit show ratings. For that, he/she will have to click on the rating tab, which is given at the top right corner of the screen.

One must also remember that if he/she has watched multiple episodes of a series, then he/she will have to remove all those from the Netflix algorithms in order to stop the app from recommending them in the future.
