    i dont know if it is illegal to ask this question here...

    I heard from some people that if you subcribe to high speed internet cable... you can take the cable wire and use a splitter...and plug one to your computer and one into your TV, and you then have free cable tv

    only pay for internet...

    is that true??

    so you're saying MOST... so probably the one in Canada does not...i heard from 2 people... so it is probably true for the canadian provider which is Videotron

    VideoTron sucks.

    For Rogers it's cheaper for them to just charge you 10 extra bucks for the cable service.

    For instance. If you have no basic cable service and subscribed to @home, they'll offer you cable for $10 extra. First I've heard of the video signal trap scenario, but what I've said was coming from a few people I've talked to in Toronto.

    i live in Montreal, and we only have Videotron
    the only deal we have is if we have cable tv, we get $10 off with the internet cable

    just take out the filter... go look at where the cable lines are directed on the outskirts of your home/apt.. the cable line should be connected to some type of filter.. just unplug the filter and connect the two lines back together.. i know they do this for cox communications.. but im not sure with others.. but hey.. its worth a try...

    what are you talking about?? haha.. im at my friends house in irvine right now.. all he did was just unplugged the 2 lines between the filter and stuck the two coaxils back together with a 50 cent adapter.. worked like a charm.

    I'm a broadband installer in VA, we always trap out video signal if the customer is not paying for TV.
