ANSWERED: How much energy do Xfinity set top boxes use?

​ ​​Question​

​How much energy do Xfinity set top boxes use?

​Answer

Comcast is committed to creating the sustainable devices of tomorrow. In 2013, we joined with other leading, multichannel video programming distributors to launch a historic TV Box energy conservation agreement.

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we provide regular updates to CableLabs regarding the energy usage data for all of the TV Boxes currently available to our customers. This chart is based on that information and is updated quarterly. For the most current version, please visit CableLabs Energy Reporting.

TV Box Energy Usage Data

The power measurements below represent the TV Boxes generally configured as they're deployed in Comcast’s network, running Comcast software and measured in accordance with the test procedures as specified in the voluntary agreement.

The energy use of an individual TV Box may vary.
