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

 

-High Speed Internet

-DirecTV

 

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.
