Want to set up and activate your MidcoTV service? You’re in the right place.
IMPORTANT: MidcoTV is not available in all areas. Visit Shop or contact us for TV services available in your area.
In some cases, you can self-install your MidcoTV service, so you don’t need to wait for a tech to start streaming.1
- New customers: Use our online shop to order MidcoTV. You’ll be given the option for self-install during the order process.
- Current Midco customers: contact us to order MidcoTV.
Note: Self-installation isn’t available everywhere. If you’ve never had Midco services at your home or are a newly constructed home, you may require professional installation. Contact us to see if self-install is available for you.
Important: If you are also installing Midco internet services, make sure to set up your internet before starting your MidcoTV self-install.
- Have your Wi-Fi name and password ready if you’re connecting your MidcoTV equipment to Wi-Fi. Need help with your password?
- You can also connect your MidcoTV to your internet with the included ethernet cord. Only one ethernet cord is included in each installation kit. If you have multiple MidcoTV receivers, you will need additional ethernet cords or will have to connect the other receivers to Wi-Fi.

- Keep your remote 3-6 feet from your MidcoTV equipment during setup.
