TV does not support this program’s content protection
If you see this message on an older HDTV, the TV may be non-compliant.

Many channels we carry feature HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), a form of copy protection. HDCP prevents digital video and audio content from being intercepted as it travels across HDMI or DVI cables. Major networks require all providers to incorporate this protection.

Make your TV compliant
  1. Disconnect the HDMI cable from your receiver and TV.
  2. Connect your receiver to your TV using an RCA-type (Component) cable. This connection will give you a high-quality picture like HDMI.
