But what if I'm a mermaid?

Kids' sports teams in motels: can they access adult channels?

I'm writing a story, set maybe a decade ago, involving an American high school team that travels a lot to play games. It's an expensive private school, so I'm guessing they stay in relatively nice motels or maybe mid-range hotels.

But I'm stuck on this scene: two 15/16-year-olds are sharing a room, and I want Boy A to tell Boy B that he knows how to bypass the parental controls on the TV.

I'm assuming that:

a) there would be adult channels (i.e. not just pay-to-order R18 movies) available by default, and
b) the team manager could ask the hotel / motel staff to block those channels in rooms they've booked, instead of just trusting the kids not to watch.

So, my questions: are those fair assumptions? And if so, would Boy A be able to work some technical wizardry on the TV to unlock the porn? I don't need to know details, just if it's plausible / possible.

I don't live in North America and I've never tried to watch porn in a motel / hotel; googling isn't getting me anywhere. Thanks in advance if you can help!
