Picture Quality

We think you'll prefer a continuous watching experience with the occasional drop in quality rather than lots of buffering. To this end we're automatically and constantly adjusting the quality to take account of your broadband connection. If the picture appears to go a little blocky then you're seeing this in action, but don't worry, the quality will quickly return.


Parental Controls

To ensure a safe experience for movies and TV, the blinkbox application on Xbox inherits the Family settings content restrictions configured for Movies and TV within the Xbox Family Centre and use these settings to filter appropriate content based on BBFC classifications.
