Netflix is a popular subscription streaming service that brings a lot of exciting video content for its subscribers. It offers the biggest library of films and TV series and is equally popular among kids and adults. As some of the content on Netflix is exclusively for adults, the service provider recognizes its responsibility and offers parental control features to let families make the most of their Netflix experience. These features have been designed to ensure that children are protected from any content on the platform that is not age-appropriate for them.
Wondering what parental controls are available on Netflix, and how you can use them? Let’s get you started with a few of them.

It’s nice to think that we can find and discover new favorites to watch anytime we get online, and that the options are endless. With that in mind, it might be helpful to know that there is a new contender that’s making its way on the scene, and it is expanding those options even more. Enter: Roku.
What is Roku?
Roku is a set-top box streaming device that allows you to watch your favorite content online, whether it’s free (think YouTube), or from a paid subscription service like Hulu or Netflix or HBO. It plugs right into your TV, so if you have an HDMI input, you are ready to set up Roku and let it get to work for you.
Roku is also a really great option for people looking to cut ties with their cable company. It’s not a subscription service, but a device that ends up paying for itself as you watch more and more content online from your favorite services. It even has offerings that are free, in case you aren’t signed up for any subscriptions yet.
Do You Need Internet for Roku to Work?
Roku is a handy little device that allows you to access basically any movie or series that you can find worldwide, and even some of the more difficult to find channels. That being said though, you’ll need a Wifi connection or high-speed internet to get Roku to work for you.
A huge plus? It gives you the option to stream directly from your computer, phone or USB to watch your own saved content on your big screen. Through its proprietary channel “Plex”, Roku gives you the option to open and watch videos saved on your hard drive, which can ultimately save you the need to rely only on your old school media players or extra devices. It’s sort of an all-in-one package, and that makes it awesome. It offers a number of models, so you are sure to find one that fits your lifestyle best.
Is There Anything Roku Can’t Do?
It’s not foolproof. Even with the rise in Roku’s popularity in recent months, it still is working daily to improve its functionality to make itself an indispensable part of your cord cutting toolkit. While it offers a lot of benefits and options, there still remains the reality that it isn’t ready to do it all, yet.
Thankfully, it’s easy to take a great thing, and make it even better.
The Perfect Match-up
When you pair up Roku with Replay Media Catcher, you have a great option to watch and record virtually any content online; perfect if you are looking for a first step in freedom from your service provider. Roku gives you nearly endless options to find your favorites online, and Replay Media Catcher makes it possible to stream them and save them. Even if you are still happily connected with your cable company and just want more options, this power duo acts as the perfect team player to make your viewing options even greater.

With new and incredible services online offering the opportunity to binge-watch some new and groundbreaking movies and exclusive series, it’s great to know that it’s still possible to watch some of our very favorite channels online, without limits. With cable packages offering endless bundles of channels that you would never watch, and at prices seriously run amok, it’s no wonder that more and more people are making the switch to watching some of their favorite channels online. With Philo TV, you get all of your favorite entertainment and lifestyle channels, for a pretty great price, and not only that, there are a bunch of other perks that it comes with as well.
What’s Great About Philo TV?
Philo TV is an online subscription TV service that works from any device. Originally it worked only with Roku, but has since joined the big leagues of Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV, just to name a few. It’s a great place to stream and watch some of your favorite programs on over 58 channels (Hello, Food Network!), so you’ll always have something to fit your mood. With Philo TV, you can capture all of your binge-worthy programs, and watch them live, later or binge them all at once. Unlike network or cable TV, you don’t have to wait each week for a brand new episode!
One of the coolest things about the service? It gives you unlimited recording in-app, so you don’t have to limit yourself to only the shows you want to save. You can pretty much save any offering they have, and to make it even better, you can stream from three separate devices simultaneously. No more fights over who gets to have the remote.
With all that great stuff, it can’t go wrong, can it? Well, that depends. While it’s great to have in-app recording, it’s not really unlimited. You can record anything, but the recordings only last for a maximum of 30 days. That means you can carefully curate your absolute favorite shows, and create the ultimate playlist, only to lose everything after a month.
But what if you want to keep them longer? Replay Media Catcher has you covered. You can stream any of your favorite shows online, and save them, no matter what, so no matter how much time passes, you’ll never miss a thing.
You don’t have to miss a single show from Philo TV with Replay Media Catcher. All you have to do is follow these easy steps:
Open Replay Media Catcher for Windows or Mac.
Select “Auto Monitoring” to turn on.
Log in to your Philo TV account. Next, find the show that you want to save and start playing it. Once it begins, Replay Media Catcher will download it in a matter of seconds!
Replay Media Catcher makes it so easy to create your perfect playlist with all your favorite shows from PhiloTV! Not sure how to get started? We’ve got you covered… Check out our User Guide for Windows or Mac, or reach out to our support team to get you started!
