TV and DVD Profanity Filter

tv guardian 501 hdThe TVGuardian automatically detects and filters profanity and other offensive phrases while you watch movies or television shows.

How It Works:
The TVGuardian monitors the hidden closed-captioning signal and compares those words to it's database of offensive words and phrases. When an offensive word is detected it mutes the sound for the sentence and displays a replacement text on the screen. See our TV Guardian Demo Video.

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!"

"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."
