cable line

We are switching from Direct TV to your service tomorrow. We have an old cable line running to the house, It is covered with vines.Will you be using that old line , and do we need to cut the vine first?

Re: cable line


Hi sheehanallen37, more than likely a new drop (cable) will be run from the pole to your home when services are installed. But it is ultimately up to the technician that is installing the service to determine if a new line is needed. If the vine is in the way or looks like it will cause issues the tech will remove the line and install a new one.
