Whether you want to keep it simple with a digital adapter, or go all out with a whole-home recording experience, we have what you need to take control of your entertainment.1
Updates Coming for Your On-Screen Guide
Starting June 5, certain Midco cable TV equipment will receive an updated look for the on-screen guide, known as the i-Guide. Customers with non-TiVo® and non-digital adapter equipment will receive the update by mid-June.
Tune to HD Setting
To add to your TV-watching experience, the upgrade also includes a new feature that switches your TV to the available HD channel if you select the standard version. Once the update is complete and you see a new look for your Guide, all you have to do is enable the setting to activate the feature.
What Do I Need to Know?
The update won't affect any of your settings – such as parental controls or DVR recordings – and the functions you currently use won't change.
While your cable TV box is updating, you will still be able to watch TV, but guide functions will be unavailable until the update is complete.
After the update, your equipment will automatically reboot.

Digital Receivers and Adapters
Sure, Midco offers the DVR and the TiVo® DVR for cable TV viewing, but there are other cable TV equipment options. Check them out here.
HD Digital Receiver
Use the HD digital receiver to access all digitally delivered channels, including HD programming, digital music channels, ON Demand and even pay-per-view (PPV).1
The digital receiver is ideal if you don’t want a DVR, but still want to see digital standard-definition channels, digital music channels, ON Demand and pay-per-view.
HD Digital Adapter
Get premium HD channels, digital music and a simple on-screen guide, plus all the channels on the Preferred or Basic Cable packages – depending on which package you choose.1
If you have an older TV directly connected to a cable outlet, you need at least a digital adapter to receive your current standard-definition channels.
Have a digital TV and want to keep that streamlined look? Midco CableCARDs are credit-card-sized plug-ins you can use to watch digital and HD channels without other equipment.1
Do It Yourself
Did you know that with a lot of Midco equipment, you can easily install and activate it yourself without a visit from one of our technicians?
You don't have to be a techie. We provide simple, step-by-step directions and video tutorials to help. Whether you have a new TV that needs equipment, an outdated modem that needs to be replaced, or you want to upgrade your equipment, you don't have to wait.
1 To receive HD movie channels, your account must have one piece of advanced digital equipment (TiVo DVR, HD digital receiver, digital receiver or CableCARD).
2 Minimum of Midco Internet 50 and cable TV are required for TiVo DVR services. A monthly $4 TiVo service fee applies. TiVo® Mini and TiVo® Stream may be needed to access whole home and on-the-go features.
