Why is this even a concern? You forgot to pay, so just send in a the late payment.

best thing to do is pay for the basic package or just cable internet and descramble the rest. where i live descrambleing isnt technicaly illegal since they do send you the signal in the first place. but steeling cable is illegal. such as going up a pole or steeling from a neighbors line

You just go to your cable box and put the wires where they belong. Not too hard. You might need a couple tools depending on how they disconnected it.

reconnecting the line might restore ytour tv service, but it won't bring back your broadband internet connection...

you can get high speed internet in most places by getting a DSL connection from the phone company.... it's cheaper than cable and just as fast in most places, but not in densely populated urban areaas...

Its sometimes hard to climb a pole and have free hands to screw in the cable. And if they have "capped" the line your really going to have a hard time.

A cap is a small metal screw that is placed over the male cable connectoron the box at the top of the pole. It can be worked off by lost of pushing and turning, but its almost imposible to do unless both hands are free. Once its off you just figure out what line runs to your house and hook it up.

Now alot of cable companys have color coded tags that hang on the cable lines. The color depends on what your se3rvice is. Im sure the people that work for the cable company can look at a pole and then radio back and check if the colors match with records. So if your pole is in plane sight your chance of getting busted goes up.

If your pole is well hidden but you can't get the caps off you can alway splice into your heighbor's slot :smirk: just climb the pole with a splitter and unscrew your neighbor's cable and add the splice then hook your neighbor's cable back up and your cable on the same splice.

This is also a way to collect info about the color scemes. If your in a big city and there are different colored tags you can splice into a line make note of the color then go into your home and see what channels your get. Once you have dome this with all the different colors you will know what color has what service.

I have hooked/unhooked cable service on many different occasions in many different ways :rolleyes: I don't talk unless Im speaking from explerience. :thumbdown:

Basicly it can be done if your crafty and smart.

There should be a cable box on ur house somewhere.
Just bust it open or get a key and take off the filters.
Easy as pie.

I used to know a guy that would always go and hook up his cable and even his electricity when it was cut off. I remember several times when he was reconnecting the power and it would arc and send shower of sparks down because he was improvising some tool. I kept waiting for him to hit the ground too.

I know here theres cable boxes on the sides of houses (their grey i think) and inside they can put a filter onto the cable, take that off and you have cable.

Heh, for the same amount of effort he could pay the measly bill each month and not have to worry about legality, moral, and safety issues. :smirk:
