V-Chip Parental Control System

All new Toshiba TVs (13-inch and larger) now include the new V-Chip. This feature allows adults to decide which show ratings are appropriate for their children. The television will then block out the video and audio of any program that has a rating beyond the selected level. Adults can override the system at any time using their secret code.

Benefit: Parents can easily limit the types of the programs their children are watching.
