Using Parental Control


Clear Creek Communications gives you more choice and control over the cable programming that comes into your home with parental controls. Parental Control is a standard feature on all of our digital converter/descramblers (including HD and DVR converter/descramblers). When the Parental Control feature is on, programming can be blocked based on program title, specific channels and/or program ratings. You can also hide adult titles from being displayed on-screen. Parental Control can only be changed by entering the correct Personal Identification Number (PIN).
