Parental Control


DISH Network is pleased to offer a software feature called "Adult Guard." This feature takes advantage of the built-in V-chip-type technology in our satellite receivers to offer you, the customer, another level of security with regards to Adult programming.

In short - you have the ability to lock out specific channels, and/or restrict access to programs with certain designated content. 

This feature is available for all models of receivers.


The new "Adult Guard" feature gives you the capability to remove the "Adult" channels (Playboy, TeN, Hot Zone, ETC, Extasy) from your Electronic Program Guide. This prevents any children in the household from viewing the programming OR accessing the program information. To activate "Adult Guard," follow these simple steps. (NOTE: procedure may vary for some receivers.)


  1. Press the "MENU" button.
  2. Highlight the "LOCKS" option, press "SELECT."
  3. Choose the "CHANNEL LOCKS" option, press "SELECT."
  4. Scroll through the listed channel numbers until you find channel 490. Highlight this channel and press the "SELECT" button once. (NOTE: You should see a checkmark appear next to the channel information.)
  5. Highlight the "SAVE" option, press "SELECT."
  6. Highlight the "LOCK SYSTEM" option, press "SELECT."
  7. Enter a 4-digit password, then highlight OK and press "SELECT."
  8. Re-enter the password for confirmation, then highlight OK and press "SELECT."
  9. Your system is now locked. (NOTE: this also automatically locks out the PPV channels, and requires the password to be entered to view or order PPV.)
  10. Press the "GUIDE" button, notice the padlock in the upper left corner is now closed, and the adult channels are no longer listed in the guide.

To view an adult channel after activating "Adult Guard", follow these steps:


  1. Press the "MENU" button.
  2. Highlight the "LOCKS" option, press "SELECT."
  3. Enter your 4-digit password, highlight OK and press "SELECT."
  4. Highlight the "UNLOCK SYSTEM" option, press "SELECT."
  5. Your system is now unlocked and you can view the adult channels.
  6. When done viewing, relock your system following the instructions above.

If you want to leave the adult programming in the Electronic Program Guide, but still wish to restrict viewing, follow these steps:


  1. Press "MENU".
  2. Highlight the "LOCKS" option, press "SELECT."
  3. Highlight the "RATINGS LOCKS" option, press "SELECT."
  4. Highlight the "NR/AO" option, press "SELECT." A checkmark should now appear in this box.
  5. Highlight the "SAVE" option, press "SELECT."
  6. Highlight the "LOCK SYSTEM" option, press "SELECT."
  7. Enter a 4-digit password, highlight "OK" and press "SELECT."
  8. Re-enter the password for confirmation, highlight "OK" and press "SELECT."
  9. Your system is now locked. The PPV channels and any show that has a "NR/AO" (Not Rated/Adult Only) rating will require that you enter the password in order to view.
