I have more than one TV Box - how do I know which one(s) must be replaced?
Simply tune to channel 1995 on each of your TVs and follow the on-screen instructions. It will let you know if that TV Box is compatible with the upcoming changes or needs to be replaced. (TV Adapters - devices that are approximately the size of a deck of cards - will not need to be replaced.)
If you are eligible for X1, we will replace all of your TV Boxes for a whole home update.
What happens if I have a DVR?
For those of you with a DVR, saved recordings will not transfer and recordings for future programs will need to be reset on the new TV Box. Learn more about setting show recordings.
How quickly will I get my new equipment?
If you choose to have your equipment mailed to you, you should receive your new equipment in three to five business days. If we have a confirmed email on file, you'll receive a tracking number.
