Self connect guide for activating your Digital Cable Box
Learn how to connect and activate your Shaw Digital Cable Box whether you purchased your cable box either directly from Shaw or from an authorized retailer. If you've recently purchased a Digital Box either directly from Shaw or from an authorized retailer, you can activate your Digital Box online by visiting my.shaw.ca.
If you have purchased a Gateway/Portal system you will need to contact a Shaw representative to arrange an install, as this product cannot be activated online (click here for contact information).
Before completing the activation, please have the following items ready:
Serial Number: Found on the rear of your Digital Box labeled as Host SN or printed below a bar code
Account Number: Found at the top your monthly Shaw bill
Self-Install allows you to quickly and easily set up and activate new Shaw TV equipment. Once your Digital Box is setup, it will need to be activated so your channel package and PPV/On Demand will work.
