PARENTAL CONTROL - Possible to block certain internet games (Overwatch) but not entire internet?

Hi,

 

Struggling parent here. Is there any way to use my BT Home Hub's Access Controls to block a particular device from access certain online game(s) at certain times?

 

I know I can use Access Control to block internet access for any given device at times that I choose. However, my issue is that I need to restrict access to my son's PC at certain times so that he can do his homework (which usually requires internet access) but so he cannot play Overwatch (which requires internet acess).

 

Really hoping this set-up is achievable.

 

Any help gratefully received.

 

Thanks

You can do it via BT Parental controls which you activate via MyBT.

You can set a "homework" period.

 

Add additional filters for homework time:

  1. Log in to My BT with your BT ID
  2. Scroll down to the 'My Extras' section and click Personalise your settings in the 'Parental Controls' panel
  3. Select Manage Settings under BT Parental Controls and choose the Set filter times tab

Hi Keith,

 

Thanks for your reply. I have tried using Parental Controls and this didn't work for me. My understanding this restricts access to websites, not online gaming such as Overwatch. I guess if I could find the IP address that Overwatch uses, that might work?
