Hey what's up guys,.
I'm ThioJoe, and in this video I'm going to show you how you can get all cable channels for free.
No matter what cable company you have.
by basically tricking your cable box into passing all cable channels to you even if you don't subscribe to some of them.
I'll explain what you'll need to do this and then of course why it works as well.
And I think you're really going to be surprised at just how simple it is.
We're going to take advantage of how the cable company system delivers channels to you and limits which ones you have access to and then remove that limit so you'll have access to all channels without having to pay for any of them.
You see, this is how the cable company system works When the cable company goes to deliver service to people It produces one single signal that's the same that is sent to all houses And includes all channels by default Now, this is because it's too difficult to produce millions of different signals for each household But obviously we can't watch all these channels unless you pay for them and that's because they have a system in place that restricts which channels you can watch, even though technically they all go to your house.
By default, every single channel signal sent to your house is attenuated which means that its weakened to the point of not really being useful so your tv by default can't watch a channel unless the cable box amplifies that signal and only does that if you subscribe to that individual channel so when you buy a tv package a separate signal is sent from the cable company to your cable box letting it know it should amplify certain channels that you pay for so they can be passed onto the TV and watched and if you don't buy a channel the signal remains too weak and is not amplified by the cable box So your TV can't display it However, we can actually amplify those TV signals ourselves So it will be passed trough the cable box already amplified Meaning that any channel you want to watch will be available to stream on the TV So thats what we are going to do, we are going to amplify the entire signal Coming in from the cable company And we can use some basic physics and mathematical principles to do this, which I'll explain So now that you know what needs to be done Let's go over how to achive that Now you're really only going to need three things.
First of all of course You're gonna need the coaxial cable that goes from your wall into your cable box.
Then you're gonna need some CDs or DVDs– either one will work — and you're gonna need about four of them And finally, you're gonna need some sort of tape I'm just using duct tape, but any kind will do Now, I'm sure you're wondering how a couple CDs are gonna possibly amplify the signal coming in through the coaxial wire Well, the same properties that allow a CD to be written on to by a computer and store data will also allow us to manipulate the digital and analog signal going through the wire Before I walk you through everything though, let me explain.
You see, every type of material has a property called 'inductivity' The more inductivity, the more it is able to induce an 'EM field' when a current passes through it CDs and DVDs are specifically designed and constructed, with materials of high inductivity.
That makes it easier for computer CD writers to write data to the CDs, and it also makes that data more durable because it's less susceptible to interference So, if an electrical current is passed through a material of high inductivity like a CD it induces a stronger current back onto itself, amplifying that signal further And, if we do this multiple times with multiple materials that signal will be amplified even greater each time.
So if we place CDs along the wire at predetermined intervals to improve efficiency We can actually amplify that cable signal without the cable box at all And that way, it can pass right through to the TV and all channels will be watchable.
We also know from Maxwell's Law that when two capacative plates are placed next to each other, they induce an electromagnetic field between them So we can use that as well, and what we wanna do is arrange the CDs in pairs so that the EM field amplifies the signal.
Now, that may have sounded very complicated but, in practice, it's very simple and I'll show you what to do.
So, enough talk, let's go over to the TV and I'll walk you through it.
Alright, so, we're at the TV, and, why don't we see some channels we don't have, for example, we'll do, uh HBO, channel two-hundred Got a lot of great shows on there but I don't have it subscribed And as you can see, it's gonna say 'Channel unavailable', it wants you to pay for the subscription, to call the cable company Obviously, we don't wanna do that so hopefully we can try out the trick And we'll get the free cable, all the channels, without having to pay for them so let's go do that.
Okay, so the first thing we're clearly gonna need to do is unplug the coaxial cable that goes from your wall to your cable box You don't need to unplug it from the cable box itself just this side and if it also goes directly from y– the wall, in your TV that's okay as well just unplug it from the wall side and we can move on.
Okay, so next, you wanna get your CDs, or in this case, DVDs, it doesn't really matter but you probably want them to be blank just so they're not important I don't recommend using, y'know, movies or music ss– CDs or anything like that because you might wanna listen to them And then, so we're just gonna basically slide these onto the cable, just like this and I recommend you put the data side inward, and that's just so when we go to tape it, you don't get any tape residue or damage the data side any way, so you can re-use these later And so, just slide on the two pairs facing inward for both of them and then we can tape them on in a second.
So, once the CDs are on, we are ready to space them out using some tape and I'll show you how to do that so we can use some scissors to help out with that Cut off some lengths, that'll probably be about the same circumference as the CDs [pop] [ripping] This should be a good length And then we can take one of the pairs So, one of the pairs and then, this is kinda tricky but, you shouldn't have a problem with it We just wanna space it out and use the tape to hold them spaced out and then we're just gonna go hold this, and go around the CD Just like this and as you can see, it's gonna kinda hold them apart just like this Alright, perfect.
So now, as you can see, th- the tape's kinda holding them apart, and then you can maybe.
wrap it around a bit.
It looks kind of ugly so, this is just a quick job for me but, y-y'know, if you wanna spend more time on it to get looking nicer and we can go do that for the second one So what I kinda found is that it might actually be easier to just take these off first, before even putting it on and spacing it out, and then you can just kinda wrap it around your finger and roll it around right onto the tape Just like this Again, probably could look better if I spent a little bit more time on it But, this'll do for now.
And then we can pop these right back onto the tape and then you don't have to do it, while it's on the cable which might be pretty difficult.
And then once you have these on you can space them out even more and kinda secure this with more tape And just tape it right on, directly And then you can see, it's gonna stay in position like that then we can do that for the other one as well and just tape it right to the wire So now, they're a little bit more spaced out And this looks really weird, but it's what it's gonna look like.
You could probably get it to look better if you really tried.
Maybe if you wanted to hide these, you could, again put it, more behind the entertainment center or anything like that, so it's not really obvious, but I had to put it here so you guys could actually see it.
So, before this is gonna actually take effect we just need to reset the cable box and the TV And if you don't have a cable box and it goes right into the TV, of course, you just need to reset the TV So, the first thing we wanna do is reset the cable box So that would be this thinner cable So, unplug that Let it go for a few seconds And then plug it back in, and it's important to do it in this order and I'll explain why in a second.
And then, we can unplug the TV after the cable box is all, restarted completely can unplug that And then just plug it back in And the reason we have to do it in that order is because first, the cable box resets and then sees the amplified signal and then passes it on and then, the TV resets and it sees the amplified signal coming from the cable box and then it passes it on to be displayed.
Now we can go and check it out and see if it worked.
Alright, so, we just did the trick We've got the CDs on here, and we can check out if HBO and the other channels are available right now HBO, we know, is not available, so we can check that out And, alright! Looks like it's showing up now Perfect So basically the wires are amplifying the signal right now and they are sending it through to the cable box and the TV is able to see that signal because it's not too weak, it's amplified enough and it's working perfectly.
So, don't move any of the wires or anything like that because it could affect it or make the image look bad but we know this works, so, that's awesome So there you have it, as you saw, the premium channels that weren't available before now are, and I can watch HBO as much as I want, any other channel as well.
Now, this should work all over the world I believe that all cable companies use the same, if not, a similar method, for delivering cable channels to subscribers.
The only exception I can think of, is if you have fiber TV, as opposed to coaxial because then it's a digital signal, not analog.
But it should still be worth a try.
And if it doesn't work, unfortunately it's possible.
that your cable company just uses a different system.
But anyway, for those of you who it does work for, congratulations on being able to watch any channel you want now.
So, I hope you guys enjoyed this video, if you did be sure to give it a thumbs up, and let me know down in the comments section what you thought so I know you enjoyed it.
Maybe tell us what cable channels or shows you're gonna watch now that you get them all for free.
If you guys wanna check out some other videos I've got those on the right-hand side.
You can just click those or look in the description for the same link, like if you're on a phone.
And if you wanna subscribe, I make new videos Monday, Wednesday, Friday, so I think it should be worth it.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys, so, thanks for watching, I will see you next time.
Have a good one.
