Which 4K boxes are compatible with Rogers and where can I purchase them?
Hi, I just bought a 4K TV and would like to purchase a new box (as opposed to rent a nextbox through rogers). Can I purchase any 4K box and connect to rogers cable? Do you have suggestions for boxes that are compatible? Thank you
Re: Which 4K boxes are compatible with Rogers and where can I purchase them?
You cannot just purchase any 4K box. You need to purchase the appropriate ones that are allowed on Rogers Cable. I assume you're on legacy digital cable and not on IgniteTV. Here's a helpful link for purchasing. I believe there are only two 4K models - one a PVR and one a STB. The model numbers start with CAV.... (PVR is CAV10455).
There's really very little available in 4K, so you may be better off purchasing a 9865 PVR for about $40-50 on Kijiji or similar. I assume you know that everyone will be required to go to IgniteTV in time, probably a few years... You may wish to consider switching to IgniteTV since all the boxes are 4K. Lots of threads discussing IgniteTV on this forum - check them out.
