Support XFINITY TV Analog vs. Digital Cable

Introduction

Find out what digital cable gives you that analog cable doesn't.

Benefits of Digital Cable

Digital cable offers interactive features such as XFINITY On Demand programs, Pay-Per-View events, round-the-clock music channels, and an on-screen program guide. Plus, digital cable offers hundreds of programming choices; analog cable rarely offers more than 100 stations.

Using a CableCARD

When used with a digital cable box, digital cable-ready TV sets will allow you to receive all of our stations and interactive services. If you prefer to use a CableCARD (instead of a cable box), you will receive only those digital channels to which you subscribe – and no interactive features.
