I have DirecTV in name only.

Message 1 of 2

In January, I moved into a new apartment and immediately set up a bundle with Verizon.  This bundle included:


-High Speed Internet



My high speed internet works fine, but I've never bothered with DirecTV until now.  I have an LG LED-LCD 26", so a cable cord can run directly into its Input/cable.  I also have a cable output in my wall.  Logically, I used a basic cable cord to connect the two.


I also did Auto Tune for my TV, so it would recognise the channels.  There are no channels to recognise.


Do I need a a cable box?  

Does my TV just not recognise?

Or is Verizon mucking up?

DirecTv is satellite based.


Did they install a Sattelite Dish and boxes?  Note that in an apartment buidling a shared dish may have been set with a distribution hardware to all apartments.
