  • Remote Control: A specialized remote control will need to be used to control the cable box. This remote will be supplied to you when you sign up for services.
  • Gateway DVR: To customers in select areas, NewWave Communications offers a whole home DVR system that allows you to access all channels and recorded material from any television, eliminating the need for multiple cable boxes.
