Ratings Update to iTunes Package TV Specification 5.3.4

March 18, 2021

The iTunes Package TV Specification has been updated to include new TV ratings for UK. You should only use the new ratings if your content has been rated by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). If your content has no BBFC rating but is unsuitable for children, use the “Caution” rating. The new values are:

U Suitable for all ages
PG Parental guidance
12 Suitable for 12 years and over
15 Suitable for 15 years and over
18 Suitable for 18 years and over

The existing rating of Caution is still available.

In addition, a new regional requirements section includes closed captioning regulations for the U.S. and metadata requirements for European countries.
