Does your apartment provide cable as part of your rent? I've been in a couple places that did that, but you have to pay for your own internet service.

No you can't, you have to activate the modem through the cable company. Since your apartment is wired up you get the free standard stuff, but anything else you gotta pay.

i don't want to hook it up because i hear that they can tell if you have a modem hooked up.

then, if they come out here, they gonna be all "lemme cut this cable chord too".

they don't have to come in your crib to turn you off btw. Just sayin', my first apartment I moved into, I was using free cable for a couple months and they found me on some sort of neighborhood scan that they routinely do.

It's "cord", not "chord".

Secondly, you're probably provided with free cable from your apartment (you should have known this before you moved in), the odds of that being a coincidence is slim to none. So if you get caught, they won't cut your cable since that's part of your rent and goes through the apartment complex.

And no, the cable company can't just come into your apartment, you have to let them in. Management most likely can, although they might give notice first. They might not even need to come in to turn your cable off, chances are they can shut it off outside the building.

Just pay for internet.

OP if you're broke like me just try borrowing someone's wifi or tether the internet from your phone.

its possible but illegal, not worth it tho because if they wanted to monitor the traffic they can figure it out if you log into FB or w/e.  Cant just be any cable modem either.

Also your cable tv could get cut anyday. Either they haven't put the filter to block out the channels or they'll get to it next time they do audits. (outside your house)

When people say they get tv when they have the modem they mean that sometimes the tech forget to block tv access when hooking up the line. The filter is really only put on when only internet is being used.

depends on where you live. most cable providers still use analog primarily (with a box to convert the signal for digital uses), but certain areas, especially in metropolitan areas, they're using all digital for various reasons. one of them obviously being to stop people from stealing cable. tvs by themselves cant convert analog to digital, if your getting digital w/o a converter through your tv its probably because of digital over the air interference through your lines.


more than likely if the cables on at your place and its a small cable company - you're probably paying for it included in your rent. alot of apartments will have one outlet from a smaller company and multiple outlets in the apt. from a major provider. in most cases these smaller companies don't offer modem services. but if they do, the only way you're getting internet through the line is to pay for modem service. modems by themselves wont do anything unless they are activated/provisioned from the provider.
