Landscaping front and want cable line moved

I am trying to find out how to get the TV cable in my yard rerouted for some planned landscaping but can find NO information about that and NO information about how to request it. I cannot find any way to contact a person to request it.

Your cable line should be buried in the easement.  Does it cross your yard in some way?

I'm not sure what an easement is - it's not on the park strip along the street, if that's what that is. The cable is buried in the yard.

I will ask again.  Does the cable cross your property in any way?  Like on a diagonal? 

 

This article gives a good description of an easement.  Technically, the easement allows for utilities to lay their lines, be it gas, electric, water, sewer, phone, cable, etc.  The easement usually surrounds all four sides of your property at the edge, and can be anywhere from 2' to 5' or 6'.  If you build or plant on this easement and the utility needs to access their line, they are allowed to dig up or remove the encumbrance in order to access their line.  You can sometimes get a waiver to allow you to place a building or landscaping over the easement, but it's not always a good idea.

No, it's definitely not in an easement. The cable is going through the main section of my yard. Even if they HAD to put it there it seems it should be along the house or sidewalk.  But it is not.

Hi esim, thank you for taking the time out of your day to create a post. I'd be happy to get someone scheduled to move the cable line for your yard project. To get started on this could you please send me a private message with your full name and street address by clicking on my name (ComcastAmir) and then click "Send a message"?
