Sky to make available network based parental controls
Sky which is now the second largest DSL provider in the UK is planning to offer a whole home solution for parental controls to its over four million broadband customers. There are no precise dates for the roll-out but it is expected during 2013 and will feature a network based solution where parents can login and control what is and is not available over their connection.
Sky already offers the McAfee parental control software, but this is limited as it only runs on Microsoft Windows and the rise of the Internet connected device is undermining the idea that a single PC providers Internet access for a family.
Lyssa McGowan who is Brand Director of Communications Products goes into more detail on what is available for those seeking parental controls via Sky on their corporate website and the providers commitment to Safer Internet Day.
