I got the Movies pack, and i live alone. Its very annoying for me to get forced to introduce the TV PIN for some movies just because there are for more than 12yo...
I tried to deactivate the PIN on my box, and its supposed to be off, but it still ask for the pin.
I live alone, so there are no childs or even anyone else that will use my Sky TV... there is any other way to deactivate the PIN?

Re: Tv pin
I think iirc it is still subject to a pin prior to watershed hours.~ Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience ~

Re: Tv pin
It is not possible to deactivate it completely, for one thing that would be against the Law, whether you are an adult only family or not. The best thing to do is change the PIN to an easy one to remember and apply. Something like 1111 or 3333, depending on the length of your thumb.

Re: Tv pin
As Tom has suggested, Sky had to do this.
The BBFC insisted that any films aired before their respective watershed times would be subjected to this feature.
I have also found that in some cases something recorded or available through Anytime will also insist on the pin being entered. One such example was Lady GaGa's Monster Ball Tour.
