Well, not exactly "stealing". My wife and I live in Yaletown and have had Shaw cable internet for 2 years. They bug us all the time to get cable, but we didn't watch much TV, and anything we did watch we downloaded from the internet (much nicer to watch on our own time, no commercials, etc). So always turned them down.
So we recently upgraded and got a new LCD and when hooking everything up, I tried plugging the TV into the cable outlet to see what would happen. It detected like ~35-40 analog channels and 80+ digital. The analog ones come through clear, perfect, but the digital ones have sound but are fuzzy picture.
Since we live in a tower/condo, is it a case of Shaw not having turned off cable from the people that lived here before? If I buy a Shaw digital cable box from CL do you think it is likely I will be able to get the digital channels as well?
Looks like I get a digital box on CL for anywhere from $20-50 but thought I would see if anyone had any definte thoughts on whether the Digital channels would come through or not.
And finally, am I a terrible person for downloading torrents and wanting free cable?
