Wireless set-top box
With a maxTV wireless set-top box, you can move your TV wherever you want. Enjoy maxTV 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.
- No rewiring means no holes drilled into your walls.
- Nice and neat—no need to hide messy cables.
It's easy! A maxTV installer will install your wireless set-top box, attach a Wireless Video Access Point (VAP) to your gateway, and sync everything up for you. Then you can move your TV and wireless set-top box to any location you want, plug them in, and you're ready to watch! You can have up to 3 wireless set-top boxes.
Want to make a non-wireless set-top box wireless?
VAPs are available for a one-time equipment upgrade fee of $24.75 each (no ongoing monthly rental fee). Just attach one VAP to your gateway, and another VAP to your set-top box (cannot be the PVR set-top box). It's so easy, you can do it yourself! For instructions, see Making a set-top box wireless.
Want more TVs to be wireless? You'll just need one additional VAP for each additional set-top box you want to make wireless.
The wireless set-top box requires a Wireless Video Access Point (one-time equipment upgrade fee of $24.75) to be attached to the gateway.You can have up to 3 wireless maxTV devices (wireless set-top boxes and/or VAPs) synced to the VAP at the gateway.
