7different set top boxes

Message 1 of 2
I have 8 TV's and 7 set top boxes for FIOS. I am spending almost as much per month on the boxes as I am on the entire rest of the package. Very troubling. Since the switch to all digital, i cannot simply plug in to the wall anymore and need to run through the STB. Is there a way I can get FIOS service on some of these TV's without a separate STB? Thanks for any help!

Minimum service, essentially just locals can be gotten on just the locals on a tv that supports Qam .  If your Tv's don support it there are some boxes (not from verizon) , that would support this.  However for most channels you would need to rent something. Cheapest thing you could rent is a cablecard (I think 3.99) but those only if you have a TV or non-verizon STB that supports it.
