Buying my rented DVR

Hello all,

 

Just had a quick question about whether or not I can actually buy my Xfinity/Comcast DVR unit.

Bear in mind, I am not asking if I can buy an aftermarket unit, I am asking if I could buy it directly from Xfinity, as I want an actual Xfinity box.

No, none of Comcast's equipment is available for sale. If you see them for sale somewhere, buyer beware, it’s not legitimate

Ok, but could you get the same model direct from the manufacturer?

So even if I go to an Xfinity store and offer them money, they wouldn't let me buy the box?

No, that’s not how it works. All equipment has Comcast serial numbers necessary for activation. Those companies don’t sell privately either.
