Pin number

I'm being asked for my PIN number when trying to view movies before 10pm.

I have never used this facility, would it be a default setting - if so what would it be?

(I wouldn't mind but it was Star Wars film originally shown before 10pm anyway so I don't see why it is doing this!)

Re: Pin number

The default PIN is 1234.

The rules for when it does or doesn't ask for a PIN are complex, depending on the rating of the programme, the time of day, the channel it is being shown on, and the Parental Controls & Purchase Controls settings.

Thanks for the reply, I really would have thought it was unnecessary if the film was originally on pre the 10pm watershed.

Re: Pin number

It's a pain, I've changed mine to 1111 to make it easier.

It's not just 10pm

The rating works as follows (from here https://help.virginmedia.com/system/...-Virgin-TV-PIN )

  • Programmes rated 12, before 8pm
  • Programmes rated 15, before 9pm
  • Programmes rated 18, before 10pm
