Blocking Smart TV apps

Hi

 

My sons (6 years old) has become addicted to Youtube and is watching awful minecraft channels that I dont want him to watch.

 

Is there a way that I can block access to these apps / sites using Plus Net. I've already blocked the www.youtube.com url from PlusNet Safeguard which hasn't warked at all.

 

Can anyone help at all?Huh

 

Mat

Hmm don't think so you could block the tv's ip address or make it time dependant (in the router).
The only way would be with a proper firewall box, but that's over kill.

You could try and set up an account on Youtube sign into that account on Youtube and configure the parental settings on the Youtube app.
