I use to work for Warner Cable in Kingsport, Tn. Cable theft is a huge problem. Actually there isn't much the cable company can do about it with an older system. We looked into the problem in Kingsport and our estimates were that 1/3 of the homes in this small town (30,000 people) were illegal. So what do you do? I came to Jax, Fl, lived in a trailer park for awhile and was dumbfounded with the attitude of the Comcast people. I paid for cable. It was hooked up. An hour later, the people next to me stole my cable. I called Comcast and explained what was going on. They sent out a repairman who disconnected their TV and reconnected mine. An hour later the same thing happened. I called again. Same thing. We did this for 4 or 5 times. Finally the repairman put a splitter on the cable to let the neighbors have free cable. Go figure.
