*Service not offered on other equipment.

**Digital Terminal Adapter (DTA) is a small entry-level converter that enables your TV to receive Basic and Expanded Basic channels in a digital format. This applies only to HD Digital Terminal Adapter and SD Digital Terminal adapter. SD DTAs are no longer being issued.

*Each customer billing statement for video services (whether stand-alone or as part of a bundle of services) will include a Broadcast TV Fee to defray the rising cost of Retransmission Consent fees that local broadcasters have chosen to charge MetroCast.

Federal law requires a subscription to Basic Service to receive any other levels of service of video programming. Additional equipment charges may apply. For customers currently receiving promotional pricing, those prices will not be affected during the promotional period.
