Do I need a second cable box for each tv in my home?
Hey there tomtough
Each TV does not require a digital box, but without one you would only receive channels that come through over an analog signal to that TV. For most areas this means just Basic cable channels (listings here: Shaw - Storefront), though some areas have not yet undergone the Digital Network Upgrade and still have Classic cable channels (tiers 1 2 and 3) coming in through analog. More info on the Digital Network Upgrade here: Shaw's Network Upgrade
So, depending on which cable package you actually subscribe to and which channels you want to see, it may be okay for you to use a TV without a digital box. But at this point, most of the time, people are looking for digital or HD content and a wider choice of channels, so having a digital box on each TV is definitely preferred.
