Can I set up my Xfinity internet myself?

This weekend I will be getting Xfinity internet service in my home (250mbps). I currently have DIRECTV service from AT&T that uses the coax outlet into my home. I plan to keep this TV service and just get my internet from Comcast. I ordered the self-install kit from Comcast, however, I just realized that Comcast internet comes from the coax outlet already in use at my home. Is there any way I can set up my internet without having to pay a Comcast technician to set it up for me?

If there isn't an existing coax cable drop line from the Comcast feed from the street / pole / pedestal, you'll need a tech to install one as well as any other needed external / internal lines / hardware.
