No. However, rental of a digital set top box is required for each TV where the premium channels will be viewed.

The initial service drop and one television set connection are included at no charge. Additional charges may apply for drops over 200 feet from the street. If we have to run through an attic, there is an additional charge of $100.
Additional outlets are either $25 (no wall fish) or $45 (if we have to wall fish).
We can provide you with a basic set top converter with remote control for a monthly rental fee. This device offers on/off (of your television), channel up/down, and volume up/down (option – If you have a newer VCR you could use it as a tuner also).
Typically between 3 and 4 sets can be connected without degrading picture quality. In some cases depending on length and quality of in-house wiring, a distribution amplifier may be required.
A distribution amplifier may be needed in installation with 4 or more TV’s connected and long cable lengths. In most cases, this will be assessed at the time your installation is performed. Installers will check at each television set to verify proper signal strength. In the event a distribution amplifier is needed, one will be provided for a one-time charge.
People may have their service stopped for periods of two to six months by notifying the communications office.
If you are currently a cable subscriber or not, a new service drop may need to be installed.
