WTSMTV Program Ratings

Just like traditional TV and films, we have adopted a ratings system to inform our viewers of a programs’ targeted audience and its potential content so the viewer can make an informed decision on what they and their families watch. 

WTSMTV has volunteered to provide this ratings system, because no current regulations exist for streaming content stations such as ours.  We support efforts to better inform viewers of online content and supporting parents and guardians in their efforts to protect their children from inappropriate content.  While the overwhelming majority of WTSMTV content is intentionally family-friendly, we believe in parents and guardians having the ability to define “family-friendly” for themselves.  We hope our ratings system makes that easier.

Below is our list of Ratings and Content Labels and their definitions.
