FIOS Cable box

I currently have FIOS in my home, but I hate paying rent on the box forever.  If I purchase a Verizon's FIOS cable box, HD version, would it work in my home ?  I heard it needs to be activated ?

Re: FIOS Cable box

Verizon currently only leases these boxes. You can not buy one.

And Monkey68 before you say you can get one on EBay - those are most likely stolen and will not be activated by Verizon.

All Verizon boxes on Ebay are stolen. Do not buy any from there. It is customers that didn't return their boxes.
