How It Works:

Customer Comments & Reviews:

"I love this...I am giving one to each of my children..." Carolyn W.

"Now we can watch our favorite movies without the profanity!"

remote"Both my wife and I give the TV Guardian huge "thumbs-up." It seems embarrassing to watch television as a family anymore with the amount of harsh language abound in even the "family-friendliest" of programs - it's good to know that we have an added level of protection for our home."
