Is the DCT-700 Digital Adapter the same as a digital converter box I can buy in a store?

A DCT-700 Digital Adapter works with your FiOS TV setup and is not the same thing as the digital converter boxes you can buy in a retail store.

 

To use a DCT-700 Digital Adapter you must be FiOS TV customer. The adapter provides FiOS TV access without the Interactive features, Video On Demand, and the full Media Guide that a regular Set-Top Box provides. Digital Adapters are ideally suited to TVs that are less frequently watched (like a TV in a guest bedroom) or where space limitations are a concern.


Do I need a digital converter box?

You only need a digital converter box if you have a TV that is not:

  • Connected to your FiOS TV network
  • Capable of receiving an over-the-air digital signal.

 

Can I use the government coupon for my DCT-700 Digital Adapter?

The DCT-700 Digital Adapter and the digital converter boxes you can buy in retail stores are two different pieces of equipment. You cannot use your government coupon towards the rental cost of your DCT-700 Digital Adapter.
