Affect of Parental Hint on Channel Listing

When creating a new channel, or updating an existing one, there is a field titled Parental Hint, does this affect a channel's listing in any way in the channel store?

Re: Affect of Parental Hint on Channel Listing

The parental hint is shown when you browse the channel store and click on a channel. Content Rated = the channel actually contains MPAA ratings. Content not rated = channel does not contain ratings and likely contains some content parents might want to restrict. "Adult" rating (of which there are only a few channels) generally would equate to an R rating - sexual scenes or extreme violence (or both), for example the Grindhouse channel and similar cult film channels.
