If you’ve purchased an easyTV set-top box at a participating Exchange, this is where you can learn more about activating the device. You need to purchase an easyTV monthly subscription and register your box in order to watch. easyTV is exclusively for U.S. ID card holders and requires authentication using a valid ShopMyExchange account.

Why use an easyTV set-top box in the first place?

Because when connected to a large-screen television, it provides the best overall viewing experience. With the included remote control, you’ll have quick and easy access to features like being able to pause a live TV broadcast, start a DVR recording, display the EPG, navigate the timeline – all that good stuff is just a click away.

As an added bonus, you will also receive AFN television programing which is generally only available with a set-top box device.
