      Nope, its so Sky can show PG 12 18 Movies before the watershed iirc.

      It is a regulation all providers are obliged to follow, not just Sky.

      I must say I also find it annoying as I don't have children watching my TV when I am not there. I found changing the PIN to something easy to put in saves a lot of bother. I use 7777, you can do it on line or with the remote.

      see i have kids, and i still find it annoying, i'd love to be able to turn it off when i am in the room and back on if i leave the room. that would be a great add on.

      ^^^^^^^^
      I am sure Sky would love to allow you to do this, but it is against the Regulations all providers have to follow. Doing so would make them liable to heavy fines.

      What absolute idiot thought up this Nanny-State idea. Does someone want to tell me how watching Pirates of the Caribbean 2 at 7pm last night is going to do irreparable damage to my kids - Bloody stupid !!!
      This just forces me to give the kids the pin so I'm not going to the TV all the time - Meaning they have access to everything.

      I have always thought that there should be a "movies" pin code and a "purchase" pin code, so you can give your kids one so they can watch the movies but it means you don't run a big bill with all the ppv stuff.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      That would defeat the object of the protection for children required by the state. Sky cannot be blamed for the British Board of Film Censors(or whatever they call themselves now) ratings. They are the ones who put the age rating on films, not Sky.

      I agree, If Sky do this its not their fault if the parents give the pin out to their kids, just as they could with the current pin. You could also then give the 'movie pin' to older children say 18 years old (or lodger for ex.) - without worry of a huge bill at the end of the month!
