Comcast internet installation with DIRECTV service

This week 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 myself or does a Comcast technician have to set it up for me?

You’ll probably need a tech. Unless you have a room with coax that you’re not using direct tv that you’re comfortable putting your modem in and be able to find it and attach it to a live Comcast cable signal.
