Are you looking for season 6? From what I understand what has started again is the second half of season 5, with episode 11 being the one that came out last week.

Switching profile rating from mature to restricted shows vikings, not sure why a restricted profile shows it but the mature one doesn’t???
Seems to be the wrong way round
many thanks for confirming that it was there and had to be something to do with my settings

Anyone can watch mature. But restricted is no one under age of number, e.g R18

 

While an M classification means the film is unrestricted - anyone can see it - it is more suitable for older viewers. This is different to the red labels which are legal restrictions and the film cannot legally be shown to anyone under the age on the label.

 

So not the wrong way around.

My profile was set to mature and wasnt able to find vikings, reseting it to restricted alows me to watch it the same with my partners profile.
Surely this is the wrong way round?, a restricted profie not restricted or limited to classification

The same was for better call saul, season 4 was not available now it is

Restricted profile = no restrictions

I don't use Lightbox but I presume that it means "show restricted content" rather than "restrict my profile".

Hey

 

 

 

Sarah from Lightbox.

 

I'm sorry I am late to the party but looks like the others answered the question correctly...

 

R rated = All Ratings allowed

 

M rated = Ratings Mature and bellow allowed

 

This means Vikings which is R rated was hidden from your search view...

 

This is a compliance guide that is set by the NZ Government and we must follow.

 

 

 

I hope you were able to change your settings and view and enjoy Vikings.

 

The next episode drops any minute now...

 

 

 

Kind Regards!





Sarah
