    Thanks, I spent an hour or two last night looking and am sure I also looked here finding only "very minimal" options to manage News sources. I'll check again tonight.

    I'm pretty pissed that my managed users (4 and 9 year old's) were suddenly watching violent news about Syria, NK and the US school shootings.

    Why wasn't this an opt-in and not an opt-out from the start is my question. Plex needs to turn all it's new features of this nature into Opt-in first to avoid this ****.
