Re: Another reason to go OTA
There was an exemption that would allow them to do so if the securing the cable plant in certain franchises against theft of service is impractical. Cable companies now consider installing traps or disconnecting taps too expensive so a an exception to a rule that was only originally for certain circumstances will now be applied nationwide.
At my new house they never even bothered to disconnect the tap. They will simply mail an installation kit when you reactivate service.
