Cable Converter? I have 2 cards for 40.00 dollars each towards a box. Why do I need this?

Does anyone know how much these actually cost?

  • Mine was 50. We bought them just in case we ever decided to drop our satllitel. We used our coupons too so we only paid 20 for both our boxes. With the way the economy is going If our bills get tight, tv will be the first to go so we got the boxes so we could at least watch regualr tv.

  • If you get your TV signal over the air through an antenna (no cable), you need a box or you will not get any TV at all.

    If you subscribe to a TV service through a cable, satellite or telephone company, you're covered already.

  • At Wal-mart they are $50 but after the voucher they are $10. You better get them ladies just in case you get your cable cut off one day or you want a tv in the house w/o cable. Make sure you use it before the expiration date. I needed mine for my sons room and the tv in the guestroom. JMO
