      New User - limiting access online

      Hi guys

      I have recently moved from BT and I would like to find out how I can limit use of our broadband package.

      BT had the option of access control so I could limit my sons usage between the hours of 08:00 - 20:00.

      Is there an option to do this with SKY?

      Thanks

      There is a Blocked sites feature which can be used in conjunction with the Schedule, but it is not very good as it blocks all but one device. Some set up firewall rules on the out bound connection which can do the job, but there is nothing as simple as the Hub method.
