What is my Virgin Media TV parental control PIN?

When you have Virgin TV you also have a PIN. This is used for Parental Control and when you purchase On Demand shows or Live Events.

Select your Virgin TV box to find out more



Virgin TV V6, powered by TiVo

Your default PIN is 1234 and if your V, V HD or V+ HD box is replaced for any reason your PIN will reset to this.

It’s important that you keep your PIN number safe and don’t give it to any younger children.

To find out how to use your PIN see Parental controls on Virgin TV.

TiVo

Your default PIN is 1234 and if your TiVo box is replaced for any reason your PIN will reset to this.

If you use apps on TiVo such as Netflix or BBC iPlayer, they may have their own PIN or Parental Control set. See Parental control for Apps on Virgin TV for more.

To find out how to use your PIN see Parental controls on Virgin TV.

Setting your PIN

It's a good idea to change the PIN as soon as your box is set up. On your TiVo box a PIN is always needed to watch:

  • Programmes rated 12, before 8pm
  • Programmes rated 15, before 9pm
  • Programmes rated 18, before 10pm
  • A channel you’ve chosen to lock
  • Any adult channels

On Demand content carries either an age rating (such as PG, 15 or 18) or a ‘G’ for ‘Guidance’ as used by some broadcasters. All our On Demand programmes and movies carry a synopsis containing the Guidance information.

It’s important that you keep your PIN number safe and don’t give it to any younger children.
