Disney’s streamer is updating parental controls in the US in order to make it easier for families to find age-appropriate content.
Starting on March 16, subscribers will be able to select which titles are accessible by content rating for each of their viewer profiles, and they can also add a pin to restrict access between profiles. The new controls are designed to prevent young kids from stumbling into watching older-skewing content that may be presented to them through the platform’s various content menus and algorithms.
This move comes in lockstep with Disney+ adding Marvel series such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher and The Defenders (pictured) to its lineup for audiences in the US, Canada, Ireland, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. These older-skewing shows were previously only available on Netflix, which aired them as originals prior to Disney entering the SVOD market. They will continue to roll out across the rest of the markets where Disney+ is available later this year.
