Step

Contact Cox cable and have the caller ID service added to your phone plan. Tell the Cox Cable representative you want to hook up caller ID through your television.

Step

You need a gateway receiver to view caller ID through your television. A gateway receiver controls all of your services (telephone, Internet, cable) and runs the programing through your television.

Step

Set up a date for a Cox technician to stop by and install the gateway receiver. This installation may be charged to your account due to the length of the installation process (it can often take a few hours).

Step

Power on your television and Cox cable receiver. The gateway receiver needs to remain on at all times.

Step

Press the "Menu" button on your Cox receiver remote and navigate to "Phone Services." From here you can view any caller information, including the caller ID.
