If you are aware of cable theft, please report it!
Cable theft is the illegal interception of cable programming services without the express authorization of, or payment to, a cable company.
Cable theft is a widespread problem that results in revenue losses to the cable industry totaling several billions of dollars per year. By depriving cable operators of substantial revenue, people who steal cable adversely affect cable companies' ability to provide their customers with high quality products and services and increase costs for paying customers.
Cable theft is illegal under federal law and state laws. Federal statutes allow for stiff penalties against people who steal cable services, including possible criminal prosecution and providing cable companies with civil remedies. Because cable theft has a significant impact on cable companies, it is taken very seriously.
