    Mediacom Question

    This is a probably a stupid question, but I will ask anyway since I don't know the answer...

    I have the Mediacom Family Package which is channels in the 2 - 78 range. Mediacom just rearranged their channels and added more HD channels.

    1. Do I need a different package to get the HD ones?
    2. I have a 38" tube TV. Do I need a new TV to see them? i.e. KCCI weather channel.
    3. What is the box Mediacom mentioned in their letter for?

    1. No
    2. Yes for HD no for weather channel
    3. the box is a digital converter box which you would need to watch the KCCI weather channel if you don't have a cable box from mediacom yet.

    You will need their digital receiver box to get the HD channels in their digital cable package. You will also need a new TV to get the HD picture. You'll be able to see the KCCI weather channel with your current TV, but you need the receiver box.
