Drawing on old-school methods to splice cable TV lines for unauthorized use, hackers say they can buy a splitter at the local electronics store and easily run an additional line from the cable modem (news - web sites) line for the computer into the television. Without a set-top box, the result is free, basic, analog cable; with an illegal converter or set-top, hackers say they have access to premium channels such as HBO and Showtime.


"I only get (basic) cable. I don't subscribe; it just comes to my house along with the cable modem signal," said Noah, who wished to keep his last name anonymous. He saves roughly $40 a month on cable but spends about $42 a month on Internet access.

"Lots of people do this if all you want is analog cable," he said. "All cable services are run through the same line; they can't just cut power to analog cable and still give you a cable modem."

Cable operators have battled this form of piracy for years, but it's taking on new urgency in the race to build high-speed Internet service. Broadband providers are struggling with costs, with AT&T just last week instituting a price increase for cable modem customers.

esvaldo, most newbees have no idea about it,
but u are thick head,
tab, its quite simple,
depends on who is ur internet provider and sat company , if its same company
example shaw internet also have shaw cable,
if u have internet service from shaw, just buy a splitter , it cost $ 2-3 at any dollar store,
just put a splitter from (internet cable that is comming out side and put one cable in to modem, the other one back of ur tv)..

Greg you will need a Ethernet to RG6 adapter. Ask the girl at Radio Shack. Don't let her tell you that they do not have them. They keep them in the back because they are illegal.

I live in Ontario, and have Persona (Eastlink) Internet. I used to subscribe to thier cable, as well. I have canceled the cable portion and still use the Internet but I am still able to get cable channels 2-6 even though I don't subscribe.

The number of channels you will receive
will depend on the type of Internet Service
you have.

With a standard Internet Service you will receive
a standard TV Service around (60) channels.

All you need is a 2-way splitter 5-900 MHz.
Try Radio Shack, Home Depot , Wal-mart,
K-mart or a Hardware store, they all sale
this splitter less then $5.00 watch TV.

I don't think this Descrambler work on Cable with a filter.

C/P from there:
http://www.cabledescrambler.us/cableFAQ2.htm

20. What kinds of channel filtering are there?

There are two types of filtering - positive and negative. Positive filtering is when a cable company injects cable noise or interference into a particular channel at the head end.

This interference will cause this channel to appear snowy, may have flashing lines, and usually has beeping type noises. Sometimes positive filtered channels are almost viewable, sometimes they are very bad and not viewable at all.

The solution to positive filtering is to get inline filters that screw into the cable. These filters remove the interference and clean the channel up so that it is viewable . Each channel that is being positively filtered requires a filter ( this means one filter per channel is required ).

Negative filtering is when a cable company broadcast a certain movie channel unscrambled ( just like all the basic channels ). If a customer does not order this movie channel, then a filter is put inline outside at the pole or in the lock descrambler.

This filter completely blocks out the channel from reaching the home. The only solution for negative filtering is to subscribe to channel (s) that are being filtered (or trapped out) and then the filter (s) will be removed-thus allowing the signal for these channels to reach the house. Negative filtered channels are usually completely snow -sometimes a very faint picture can be seen.

Here in Quebec city, it is a Negative filter

Yes,as posted Rogers cable puts a filter on the line to block out channels.You would have to remove the filter at the cable box to get any channels.I had a friend that did this and it only lasted 6 months because Rogers returned and put on another filter(routine check up I guess).He just received a reminder at his door that he needed to contact Rogers to resume his cable viewing(No accussation of it being tampered with).That's the low down folks.

its not stealing cable. When u pay fo a cable internet connection, u are also paying for basic cable, it is just a hidden cost. 42 bucks a month is an awful lot for just internet.

Yes they regularly roam in neighbourhoods and visually look at the splitter boxes in the posts. If you removed a trap and their sheet says you are not a subscriber, you are stealing telecommunications and go to jail.

Some operators affix colored tags to cables to signal who gets what. Do not move tags around. You are dead otherwise !!!!

You need a special tool to unscrew the filter.

If neighbours see you playing around in a ladder near cables, they will call either the Police, the Cable Company, Electric Utilities or the Fire Department thinking you are about to commit suicide electrocuting yourself.

Amazing the fact that once posted, even if you re-read your text many times before posting, you notice so many errors....

If it is not your syntax, then the semantics is wrong and if both are correct, then someone find a double meaning or an overseen cultural note....

Well, that is the price to pay for not being a born English speaking person.

u can unscrew them with pliers, its not a big deal. the thing u need to do is find a cable tv installer thats off work, get him to come to ur house and connect ur cable wire to the splitter on thepole. he would do this for a 1 time fee of around 50 bucks and he would put a green/ yellow tag on the wire at the pole saying it is legit. this is all they look fr when "roaming" the neighborhoods. or u can climb the pole urself and connect it. u wouldnt have the green tag, but it would last a long time if u live i a rural area.

Let me add something to my question.
Does the filter (trap) send a pulse to the cable company to indicate what signal is getting through and what's not?

The trap is passive. No signal is sent back upstream.

Cable companies have and will sue you if you get caught for theft of telecommunications. That is a $15,000 fine. Cable companies have done it frequently in the past.

Think FTA (pure FTA) if you want to watch free TV for now. And rabbit ears (or an external decent Yagi antenna). You can't get caught using those.

And all ON-THE-AIR stations will be broadcasting in digital mode (not necessarily HDTV) by 2011.

A bright future lies ahead for rabbit ears and Yagi antenna manufacturers.

Yes. The penalties for obvious theft are well defined and the decisions are also well defined and repeated all the time.
Long drawn out cases are all related to ill-defined areas of theft and issues bordering on theft and in conflict with basic rights.
