TV FAQs

How many digital devices do I need?


Equipment is needed for every outlet on which you want to watch Starter TV (formerly known as Basic TV) programming.

You will need a Set-Top Box, digital adapter, or a CableCARD™ enabled device on each TV in your home once encryption is complete. QAM tuner TVs will no longer be able to provide the signal without being connected to a digital device.

Note: The encryption initiative currently only affects customers in LA and NYC.
