Are digital set-top cable boxes necessary?

Digital equipment is required for all new installs, including existing customers adding outlets.

Existing customers will need digital equipment on an outlet if:

  • You don't have a cable-ready TV.
  • Your TV, VCR or DVD cannot tune to all of the channels provided as part of your cable service.
  • You wish to subscribe to premium services, such as HBO or Showtime.
  • You wish to subscribe to Premiums On Demand, Movies On Demand and other interactive services.
