Ordering Pay-Per-View (PPV)
Pay-Per-View (PPV) can be ordered at the start of a program or in advance. There are three ways to select and order a PPV program:
- Using the MENU option of your Program Guide with your MetroCast remote
- Using the GUIDE button on your MetroCast remote
- Tuning directly to the PPV channels (801-803, 899) using your MetroCast remote
Ordering PPV Using the MENU Option
