How to Block indecent shows on xfinity

How can I block the Viceland channel from the Xfinity TV Go?

 

My child has just pulled it up on his computer to watch cartoons and on the top row he reads:  F*ck  thats delicious, Gaycation, Balls Deep.   Why is such titles placed where a child can read them and how do I block them ?

Can I then block the entire H2 or Viceland channel ?

There are Parental Controls under settings.

Re: How to Block indecent shows on xfinity

I don't think this is a parental control issue, but rather a mess up on Comcast's part or possibly a hack. I saw in my schedule for History channel 2 (H2) the same shows for Monday, Feb 29th. This showed up on the X1 guide on the TV, as well as on the online guides.

 

It also showed some number to call.

 

Or is this the new format for H2 after Feb 29th?

H2 is being rebranded as Viceland on 2/29. That's not a hack it's the schedule changing.

So no more H2?  Looks like quality programming!

Nope, it looks like it changes after 5 am 2/29.

OK, I did use the parental control and I was able to block the individual channel. The sad part though is the channel itself did NOT go away. My child can still read the indecent titles listed on the television guide and on the xfinity to go. 

 

There should be a way to to make the ENTIRE channel or show go away. A young child should not be able to read or sound out the unwanted porn, foul language etc of the titles while trying to simply trying to browse for cartoons.

That new Viceland seems like a real positive addition to the channel selections (sarcasm). Looks like they are trying to shock with their choice of show titles. I'll be removing H2 from my favorites list.

I've escalated this for you to see what can be done.

Re: How to Block indecent shows on xfinity

I agree with this request.  I would like to remove the channel from my program guide as well.  Is there a way to do this?
