Pay Per View/On Demand

Pay Per View

AcenTek offers Pay Per View television which is a service that allows the viewer to purchase events that are only available through private telecast. Events, such as boxing, wrestling, concerts and more, can be purchased using an on-screen guide. You can choose if you want that event to be viewing on one television in your home, or if you want it to be available to all televisions. You simply create a PIN number to allow the charges to be put on your AcenTek account and then pay for it when your monthly AcenTek statement is due.

Video On Demand

Video On Demand is also available from AcenTek. Purchase programming that you would like to watch whenever you choose, rather than when it originally broadcast. Make your selection from a VOD menu and enter your account PIN number to add the programming to your list of saved events.
