Use the control buttons, such as Play or Pause, on the remote to control the movie the way you would a DVD.

How to Locate the Purchase on Your Bill


The movie or event rental fee is applied to your Cox Digital Cable service and appears on your next monthly cable TV bill.

Some shows, such as those on FreeZone, cost nothing extra at all. For others, such as new movies, you pay a small fee. Prices vary, depending on the show.

How to Resume Viewing at a Later Time

  2. Use the right or left arrow button to highlight Purchased or Recently Viewed.

    : A list displays showing movies or events with active rental periods.

  3. Use the up or down arrow button to highlight the title you want and press the SELECT button to restart or resume viewing.

Note: The Purchased and Recently Viewed lists are unique for each digital receiver in your home. The program you’re watching in your bedroom only appears in the lists on your bedroom receiver.
