HELP Cable newby - heard a rumour

Apologise for my ignorance, but I heard a rumour that you can do things to get all cable channels.

Would someone give me the lowdown please.

I've got NTL wired in but no cable box at the moment. Do I need to get basic NTL package then get myself a dreambox to replace it or something?

You don't need to have any cable package for a dreambox to work you only need a live feed but I would say it's best to have the minimum package or broadband connection so that your cable connection is never disconnected

The rumour you heard is true,so you need to do alot of reading,by using the search button you will find most of the information you need.
To answer your question if you have a cable feed you need a box to view cable with,ie dreambox,dbox,or a modded cable company box.I myself do subscribe to cable,but this is not essential,or though advisable.
Ps it would be nice to introduce yourself in the who are you section.

Yes m8 they are a nice piece of kit, just have a read through the dreambox section for all the info you need and make sure you get it from a reputable dealer, there are a few fake box's about
