Cox does not sell digital receivers. If you already own a digital TV receiver, we lease CableCARDs that work with certified compatible CableCard retail devices, like TiVo. It's the perfect solution to provide you with the cable TV experience you are looking for without the added charges of renting equipment you've already invested in.

TV Starter with the basic cable lineup that includes broadcast channels such as ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox starts at $25.00 per month plus taxes, fees and equipment. For a package that includes more cable channels like ESPN and HGTV, see our special offers on the Bundles & Deals page.
