V-Chip is a technology that allows the broadcaster to embed a rating for a television program into the broadcast stream.
If desired, a viewer can set a “rating limit” on their television set, so that programs with a rating higher than the limit will not be shown.
This is advantageous for parents with children who may want to set their TV to block content with ratings higher than PG. The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has some great information here.
Super Channel and Super Channel On Demand have the V-chip embedded to provide the ability to limit ratings.
We only develop feature-length movies and documentaries. Please see the Producers’ Page on our website for more info.
