There’s a lot to be said for traditional cable TV. Today, U.S. cable providers deliver hundreds of channels, available 24/7, to millions of homes across the country. It’s nice to be able to get home, turn on the TV and relax for a bit after a busy day.

But the way people are watching TV is changing. People want entertainment on their time – the ability to watch TV when they want, how they want, even if they’re not at home.

That’s why we offer more with Midco cable TV. Here are four ways you can get the most value and a a convenient experience with your Midco cable TV package.


Set TV Guide Favorites & Reminders

You can do more with your interactive on-screen guide than just hitting the Guide button on your remote to scroll through what’s on right now. Create a Favorites list of channels, so it’s always easy to find your favorite shows. This will help you make the most efficient use of your time when you have some time to unwind.

Want to get a reminder about a show you’re interested in or when that big game is on? Set a reminder in your guide to let you know when it starts. That way, you make sure you don’t miss it if you’re tuned to a different channel.


Stream Shows Away from Your TV


All Midco cable TV subscriptions include TV Everywhere channels – so you can watch your favorite series, movies and events anywhere with an internet connection. All you need is your Midco email credentials to watch on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, gaming device and more.

Sample Premium Channels for Free

Throughout the year, premium networks like HBO®, MLB Network®, SHOWTIME® and STARZ® offer free previews to cable TV subscribers – so you can try out their programming and check out the hit shows. We notify Midco customers via email (if you’re subscribed to those updates) and social media when free previews are available – so update your email preferences in My Account, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.


Enjoy TV ON Demand


Whether you love to watch movies or need to find a kids’ show “right now,” turn to Midco ON Demand. That’s where you can find up to 40,000 ON Demand titles, with 12,000 new titles added every month. You don’t have to leave the house to watch or rent the latest movies and shows. Many of the available ON Demand titles are free, while others can be rented for a small fee.
