Premium channel & internet

Premium channel & internet

I have Direct TV as my tv service, but xfinity as my internet service. When I signed up I was also given as a perk HBO & sent a cable box.  My question is how does that work? If you hooked the box up to your tv could it get the channel from your modem...mystifying to me.  Thanks

That cable box would need a live Comcast fed cable signal going to it, when you do hook it up to a TV
