What is a CableCARD?

A CableCARD is a removable card that plugs directly into some TVs and third-party digital converters or DVRs to provide access to authorized digital cable programming. The CableCARD enables such equipment to receive authorized digital channels and services from Bright House Networks.

Depending on the services you want to use and the capabilities of the device that will use the CableCARD, you may be able to lease a CableCARD from Bright House Networks to use with your personal digital converter or DVR. You would then use your device in place of the digital converter or DVR you would normally lease from Bright House Networks.

Our monthly price for a converter is $8.00 and includes an imputed charge of $2.95 for the CableCARD. We may offer bundled packages that include the price of one or more converters within the advertised package price. A customer who leases a standalone CableCARD in lieu of taking the included converter will not be charged for the converter that is not provided, but will be charged only the applicable prices for the CableCARD and any other equipment leased from us.

CableCARDs can be installed by Bright House Networks professionals, or you can pick up a CableCARD at a Customer Care Center. If you install the CableCARD yourself, you must Contact Us by phone for assistance with the installation.
