We have the Family Plan and today a bunch of adult channels (481-499) popped up unlocked and unblocked. What is going on???? I checked online and it still shows the account programming to be the Family Plan. Programming changes show nothing for the past 90 days. Is this some sort of bizarre "free preview"?

Probably lost your settings under parental controls. Those are PPV channels, and are available to any package, just like HBO or Showtime.

Just go into parental controls, and reblock them. Then change your password, because someone might have guessed it ;)

Previously, adult channels were not available to any Family Plan sub. Now they are.

Im like 95% this is dead wrong but I honestly cant remember.

Anywho my money is on that someone ordered the adult block, its like 18$ or something and it grants access to a handful of adult channels for a few hours.

It wouldnt show up in changes because its not a change, its a pay per view. Check your recent ppv purchases just to be safe.

If it was ordered set up parental blocks and then yell at any teens in the house :lol:

Just so I'm totally clear---are they just showing up in the guides (maybe my channels or all channels) as available? Or does it go beyond that to where you are actually able to see video?

Certain customers had the Adult Block for DishFamily removed as a test recently. If you're not happy about them appearing, the block can be reinstated by request.

Previously Adult programming was not available to customers who subscribed to DISH Family. Recently there was a change that now allows Adult programming to be ordered with this package. If you want to have these channels blocked please send me a PM with your phone or account number and I'll be happy to help.
