Cox does not sell digital receivers. If you already own a digital TV receiver, we lease CableCARDs that work with certified compatible CableCard retail devices, like TiVo. It's the perfect solution to provide you with the cable TV experience you are looking for without the added charges of renting equipment you've already invested in.
