Turn off Parental Controls

I've never enabled parental controls, yet when accessing streaming sites I receive the message: Whoa! This content may be inappropriate for children. I've tried going through the Xfinity website and app but find no setting for parental control. Please help!

8 months later and [Edited: "Inflammatory"], I am still in the same boat. I have paid for starz and cant watch it. I get: Your Parental Controlsettings do not allow you to view this content...... I just spent the past 5 hours on text, chat, and on the phone and nothing it resolved. [Edited: "Language"]. Im taking this to Twitter

I ran into this same issue when trying to watch a show on NBC. It says that parental controls have blocked this show from me. I've never enabled this...how do I turn it off?
