Dish Network gives the option to block selected cable channels by using a code. There is not one set code, as the code is selected by the user.

Dish Network offers the option to block channels three different ways. To keep younger viewers from watching mature programming, use a parental lock to block programs based on MPAA rating. To prevent viewing of programs on a specific channel, use a channel lock. A lock is also available to deter others from ordering pay-per-view or videos on demand without permission. Additionally, Dish Network offers the option of removing adult channels completely from the on-screen viewing guide. See the "Parental Locks" page on the My Dish website for more information.
