Wireless set-top box
With a maxTV wireless set-top box, you can move your TV wherever you want. Enjoy movie nights in the backyard, catch sports on the deck, or simply get around to rearranging the living room.
- Watch TV anywhere in your home or backyard—all you need is a power outlet.¹
- No rewiring means no holes drilled into your walls.
- Nice and neat—no need to hide messy cables.
- You can have up to 3 wireless set-top boxes.
It's easy! Pick up your wireless set-top box and video access point (VAP) at a SaskTel Store or order it from 1.800.SASKTEL (1.800.727.5835), then follow simple step-by step instructions.²
¹Customers are free to move their wireless set-top boxes anywhere on their property; however, service is only supported when the VAP and the wireless set-top box are within the same building.
SaskTel does not guarantee wireless maxTV service. Whenever a wireless signal is used, there are many factors that can impact signal strength and quality, including the distance between the set-top box and the Wireless VAP, construction materials used in the home, and other interference.
The wireless set-top box requires a wireless VAP (one-time equipment upgrade fee of $24.75) to be attached to the gateway. You can have up to 3 wireless maxTV devices synced to the VAP at the gateway. You can only have one VAP attached to the gateway.
VAPs are intended for use with maxTV service only; any other use is not supported. These devices are not for use with maxTV PVR set-top boxes (model number VIP 1216 or VIP 2262).
VAPs and set-top boxes are rented equipment and remain the property of SaskTel. These devices must be returned to SaskTel if maxTV service is cancelled.
maxTV does not offer 4K content; however, you can watch 4K content on the ARRIS 5602 or ARRIS 5662 set-top box if you subscribe to a Netflix plan that supports Ultra HD (4K) and your TV is compatible. See Using the Netflix app on the ARRIS 5602 maxTV set-top box for more details.
