You now can reorder the rental and will not be double charged, you will still have the original 48 hour rental timeframe as before. If the problem continues, call 1-800-665-3131.

Please make sure your cable line that comes out of the wall is plugged directly into the digital decoder. If there is a VCR, splitter or any other third party equipment installed, this can cause a problem with two-way communication which can cause Video On Demand errors. If you need further help setting up your digital decoder, please consult our Connection and Activation section.
