Set Top Boxes


You have a choice in life. You can pay the cable company for the rest of your life for equipment that you will never own or you can provide your own equipment. The best thing about having your own equipment is that you can decide what you want it to do and what you do not care about. Most of the time more than half of the amount you pay the cable provider each month is for the equipment. It is not their fault, it is simply where the majority of their lost money lies and everyone has to pay the cost for a few bad apples.


The great thing is you can get rid of that cost by having your own set top box. This puts that money right back in your pocket and gives you the ability to pick and choose the set top box that does what you want it to do. You may not need to record video or you may want more space to save videos. Only you know what you need and going beyond that is just a waste of energy and a waste of money, your money.

For the cost of one month worth of cable, you may be able to replace the set top boxes that you have now and own them out right.
