  1. You should require a password or PIN to switch to a profile. Currently my 10 year old daughter can just switch to my account.

    You should require a PIN to switch accounts. My 10 year old daughter can just switch to my account and get access to adult programming.

  2. Ability to hide or block certain shows

    There are several shows that I don't like my kids to watch. They are annoying and have no value to boot for children. I'd like a feature that blocks that individual show. We have set up the parent restriction and that's been great. We need more control over the content that are kids have access to.

    Thank you

    Looks like you have plenty of ideas for parental controls. I think you should implement one or more. The technology is simple, why is there no will to make this happen?

  4. More parental controls

    I really wish you had more parental controls. I want to be able to filter my content so that I (and especially my kids) can only watch clean shows. I don't want to see the nasty covers or shows. The lack of parental controls on hulu has made me use and like netflix more.

  5. Able to approve a show

    I think that you should be able to approve or add a show on your kid's profile. My son likes to watch Yu Gi Oh 5D's (he's 12)and it showed up on his queue to watch then said it was restricted. There is not an option to let a parent approve a show or add it. He has to watch it on my profile.

  6. Just add a feature to block individual shows with a pin

    so tired of seeing raunchy **** when looking for a show for the family to watch. The ratings on shows don't necessarily mean that a show is good or bad... it's so broad. If you had a feature that has a block list make it for individual shows and movies, add a pin...let parents decide what is appropriate for them and the family...if you guys did this I'm sure that you would be the first.

  7. there needs to be an option for the kids commercials they are viewing on Hulu tv.

    My son is 5 and he is Watch the peanuts show (with snoopy) on demand and before he coukd watch it commercials for tru tv came on with the Chris gethard show and other shows for 2. Intumescent before he could get to the cartoon. There is no reason for my son to be viewing things like that when he has a kids profile. There needs to be an option to choose a different commercial.

  8. 4-digit Passcode for content ratings

    In addition to what has already been written about passcode protecting accounts, even if Hulu added the feature of requiring a passcode for certain age-appropriate content that would get the ball rolling. There are great cartoon varieties in Hulu, which is fantastic, but because of the ease of wandering, curious children I can’t install the app on my 10yr old’s Apple TV. PLEASE Hulu! Fix this ASAP! Have it across the board for the Live Stream option that you all recently made, and then I can consider more options. Thanks!

  9. Make Children's Accounts More Programmable for Parents Or WE'LL TAKE OUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE!

    With no option to search within a Kid's account and no ability for us to add content to their accounts from our computers, you have stifled our ability to create quality programming for our children! There is not even a way to switch back and forth from kids mode to adult mode so that we can edit the content ourselves from within their settings. We have no ability to monitor the types of commercials you show them, nor can we search the history. Now you ask for their exact birth date, which is NONE of your business. If we try…

  11. Parental Control options to include specific titles or show names that can be added to blocked list

    My son is a tween, I don't mind him watching SOME adult swim (animes such as Naruto, Inuyasha, or the equivalent) but there are others that I don't want him to have access to. For this reason, when parental controls are initiated, there should be an additional option (*WHICH NETFLIX DOES NOT CURRENTLY OFFER IN COMPARISON*) to block or also ALLOW certain titles or shows to be viewed withOUT parental control PIN. This would mean that as a parent I can block all rated shows such as NR, TV14, R, etc. but would still be able to set exceptions for…

  12. Profile Pin

    Clearly a large amount of your customers what the ability to put pins on their profiles to prevent children from accessing adult content. How about it? Not an unreasonable request right? Let's make it happen Hulu, or should a petition to boycott until it's implemented be created?

  13. I'm an adult, live by myself and want to turn all this stuff off in my home!

    These are important features in homes with children. For those of us without kids, it's all just in the way. Please provide a user-configurable feature to turn parental controls and kids menus on and off. Thanks in advance since this is a total no-brainer.

    My family and I really enjoy Hulu. My request is: When we are searching for a movie some of the images contain two men kissing or together in an inappropriate or suggestive manner. Would you please omit or change the images for the sake of children.

  16. More control over content.

    I want to be able to control my profiles content more. If I don't want movies over a certain rating I should be able to choose that. Netflix does it. You tube has it. I'm sure it's possible without too much work. Please make this change so I don't have to look through movies I would never watch. I.hate just looking at the covers of some of them.

  18. Add MPAA ratings to movies

    It would be really nice to see what movies are rated G, PG, R and why, language, violence, ****** content... without having to look it up on another device.
