Question about how cable services work...

Do comcast cable lines send the same data but are split/unscrambled at the cable box? Is a cable box pre-setup for the premium services and packages and then unscramble the signals or are the signals for the different types of services (premium etc.) for each account determined by the/a computer and the proper stations are sent over the cable lines to the hous connections?

The cable box descrambles them based on provisioning sent to the box
