- Select or Tap on the language options icon
- Choose your subtitles or audio description options
- If the icon is not showing, the options cannot be used for this channel

If you’re using a computer, the support available depends on your operating system.
Parental Controls for TV Go Parental Controls for TV Go
PIN protection across all your devices allows you to set an age rating restriction to control what can be watched On Demand.
By default the age rating restriction asks for a PIN for all On Demand and Live TV channels (pre 8pm) content rated PG and above. The PIN is set to 0000.
Note: Watching Live TV with Virgin TV Go is not PIN protected, as channels show content appropriate to watershed times.
Changing your PIN
- Log into Virgin TV Go, go to settings and select Change PIN
- You’ll need to enter your username and password again when prompted
- Enter your current PIN – but if you can’t remember it, reset to the default: 0000
- Confirm your new PIN for all Virgin TV Go devices
Note: On some devices you may need to go to Parental Settings
When prompted for your PIN, choose which restrictions to apply for On Demand content – either the same age rating or higher. If you want to stop TV Go asking for your PIN, select Unrestricted
Note: Your Virgin TV Go PIN is separate to your Virgin TV box PIN and Sky PIN
