Specify Your Location

The first step is to confirm your region. Generally, you will accept the default region (in this example, the United States). However, if you are trying to pick up ATSC TV from another region, you might need to specify that region in this step. Click Next to continue.

After selecting the region, you will be prompted to enter your ZIP Code (US) or postal code. The combination of Region and ZIP/Postal code is used by Windows 7 to determine the correct TV program guide information to download. Click Next to continue.

Install PlayReady

After you agree to the current terms of service for the Program Guide and click Next, you are prompted to install PlayReady, Microsoft's content protection technology. Click I Agree, and Next to install PlayReady.
