Self-Install & Activate Your Equipment

Self-installation is available for some cable equipment. If you're self-installing, choose your equipment below for steps to install and activate. Or, if you just need to activate your equipment, enter your cable box serial number below and select Activate Now


Activation in Process

Activation may take up to 15 minutes. When it’s successful, a solid, green light appears on the equipment front.

  • If you can’t view a channel even with a solid green light, you may be on unauthorized channel not included in your cable package. Use your remote to try another channel.
  • If there’s an on-screen error message, refer to our list of common error codes.
  • If issues persist or your light isn’t solid green after 15 minutes, contact us.

Activate Cable Outlets

Not all coax outlets in your home may be active. If you connect your TV equipment to a coax outlet and it doesn’t work, you may need to activate it. We’ve got how-to steps and a video to help.
