How to block purchases for XFINITY On Demand channels and Pay Per View by setting a Purchase PIN.
If you have the X1 Platform from XFINITY, please see X1 Platform from XFINITY - Using Parental Controls for more information on how to set up a Purchase PIN on your set-top box.
What to do
When you set up a Purchase PIN, pay XFINITY On Demand or Pay Per View programs will not play without it. A Purchase PIN is not a parental control, so it will block pay programming regardless of ratings.
To set up a Purchase PIN:
Press the Menu button on the remote.
Select the Home icon to display the Main Menu (the Home icon is the first icon on the left with the picture of a house).
From the Main Menu, select Setup.
- From the Main Menu, select Parental Controls
||In the next screen, highlight and select PINs Setup. Here you can:
- Create a 4-digit Locks PIN to lock programs by rating, channels or titles.
- Create a 4-digit Purchase PIN to prevent an unwanted purchase of pay XFINITY On Demand or Pay Per View programs.
- Set an option to lock all programs after a power loss, until ratings and titles are restored.
