My father gave me all his old shaw boxes. Do I have to register them or anything to work in my house?
After you plug the digital boxes into the electric sockets and the wall outlets, they will send a message to the Shaw channel server: "What channels am I supposed to get?"
The channel server will reply with: "Who are you? Sorry, I can't authorize any channels for you til I know what account you're supposed to be on."
Well, maybe not quite that but close. We would need to transfer those boxes from your father's account to yours. If his account is still active, he would have to give permission to release them first and then we can add them to yours. If he's closed his account, we would just need to add them to your account, much easier.
If you haven't contacted a Shaw rep yet (by phone, chat, Twitter or Facebook), let me know and I can private message you.
