You may find this helpful to ensure children and younger viewers in your household can only view content that is appropriate for them.
film4productions.com is part of Channel 4 who is a member of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety.
Please note Film4 Productions Parental Controls are separate to those that may have been set on other Channel 4 websites/apps. For example, if you have set up PIN protection for content on all4.com, this will not be recognised by film4productions.com and a new PIN will need to be set up specifically for content on film4productions.com.
