Any ideas on how to get cable Tv for Free or close?

Recommended Posts

I just moved into an apartment and i really want cable tv but I found out to get it from COMCAST i have to pay $35 a month just for regular cable shit. Does anyone have any good ideas for cheap ass cable....or know of any other cable providers besides COMCAST (live in the bay area) I heard about the black boxes that give you every channel but have no idea how to get one....somebody help!

as far as i know, black boxes and shit are the only way to do it.

unless you have the know-how to make one from scratch, your only option is finding someone who can hook you up.

 

i know a uhh...friends dad...yeah a friends dad..who got hooked up with all the movie channels for free, for several years, by giving the cable guy a $50 bill. try it.

'round here they got a bunch of those public service commercials,"stealing cable is a crime, punishable by a fine and jail time", really cheap shits that dont deterr anyone, im sure you can get black boxes at a flea market, or maybe ebay, and sometimes those one porn catalogues where the movies are like 4.99 each:D

simple... patch into a neighbour.

I get free cable because someone who lived

in the pad before me brought his pops in to get a little creative

with the cables. It was really easy by the looks of it. The only

addition is an RF amp to clean up the picture.

Its pretty simple, I had my dad do mine for me. Its a matter of going outside to the box or the 'line' and switching a chord around. I dont get anything super ridiculous but I get like 65 channels and HBO and Showtime and stuff.

 

Its funny that this is mentioned because I met this dude last night thats a cable guy. And we were talking about how many ppl in this city have free cable. He was saying something about how its being cracked down on and the cable company is actually hiring ppl to go around and check for ppl w/o these certain 'red tags' in thier 'box'.

 

Ask around, theres a lot of ppl with free cable that could help you out.

Well, Here's the easiest way.

 

Call and order the BASIC BROADCAST plan

It's only about $15 a month (you should be able to handle that....) Then, when the service guy comes, offer him $50 to remove the "TRAP" (the device that limits the amount of channels that you recive.) Most cable guys are actually independant contractors that only report to a branch office. The guy will either do it, or he won't. He can't really get in trouble for it, because there is no way for the cable office to know that you are getting all the channels. You won't get in trouble either. I've done it at every apartment I've lived in for the last 6-8 years. Works every time. You just have to gain the trust of the cable guy real quick, to make him undertand that it isn't a setup to get him in trouble. He'll most likely ask you if you are being asked to ask him by the cable company, if you say no, that negates any legalities that would stem from said incedent.

See....I told you. The one time fee of $50 gets you years of full cable for only $15 a month.

yes a trap wrench is nice but you can use super glue, fill the hole and let it set and it will just screw off.

also if you want to get dtv or dishnet for free look into some of these sites. esp for those of you in canada, its legal to hack dss there b/c its not sold there. but in the us it is very illegal, just thought id add this in
