The features depend on the type of device in use as you have already seen that the services work as an app within devices. Let’s say parental control, FilmRise doesn’t have this feature of parental control. But yes, if you are using this app on Roku or on Amazon Firestick then you can lock some of the content with a mature age rating to prevent your kids from streaming that content.
