We offer parental controls for all of the television and Internet services that come into your home.

Parental controls work whether you are in the room with your children or the kids are home alone.

Parents cannot always be there to manage and control their children's television viewing. Mediacom provides a variety of options to manage and control television viewing. We also include additional resources that parents can visit to find out additional information and learn how to set limits and control. Mediacom Installed Filter
For customers with Broadcast Basic or Family Cable TV service, Mediacom can install a filter, often referred to as a trap, on the cable equipment outside the home. This filter will block unwanted channels until the device is removed. Filters may impact reception on adjacent channels, and there are some limitations on the number of traps installed. There is no charge for installation.
  If you are a Mediacom customer without a digital cable TV package, and are interested in receiving a digital set-top box, which only provides access to parental controls at no additional charge, please call us for details at 1-888-847-6228.
Mediacom interactive program guide
Every Mediacom digital cable TV package utilizes a digital set-top box. Included in all digital TV packages is the Interactive Program Guide channel with advanced Parental Control features, giving viewers the greatest flexibility to block and unblock individual programs or restrict programs across all cable channels with particular ratings such as all R-rated programs.
