Activate My Frontier TV Set-Top Box

Activating your Set-Top Box (STB) is easy and works the same whether you're:

  • Upgrading to a new Frontier® service
  • Adding a new STB to another TV
  • Installing it yourself
  • Having a Frontier technician install it for you

For Frontier TV customers:

  1. Connect your router to your STB with the ethernet cable provided.
  2. Connect one end of the HDMI cable to your STB and the other end to your TV.
  3. Your STB begins the activation process.
  4. A message pops up on your screen to show you the STB's progress.
    • If you don't see the message, you'll see a technical support number to call.
  5. When the lights turn green, your service is activated. When you see a Frontier logo on your TV, you're ready to watch.
