xfinity DCT700/usa

I talked my dad into going with Comcast/Xfinity.  I made a mistake. The fees associated with the boxes are a rip off.  I was told before we signed him up and after we were signed up that I could go onto Amazon to buy a replacement box.  We did just that and customer service refused to activate the new boxes.  Everyone had some line about why it couldn't be done.  We are changing over to Verizon.

Cable boxes are not sold at retail in the US except for Tivo.

 

You should have come here first and there are many warnings not to purchase a cable box.  It's not Comcast's fault you didn't do your homework.

 

A DCT700 is a very old box for SD service and would not be recommended for anyone these days.  Boxes like this are sold by shady resellers with questionable sources on where they were acquired, since there is no retail versions.

Funny you say that cause Comcast gave me two DCT700 boxes to use vs giving me what I pay for which is upgrade service
