I’m trying to figure out how to help my tenant have tv in her room. In her room, there is a cable line. She doesn’t want cable, but wants just regular tv (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS etc) so she plugged her tv into that cable and nothing happened. She is telling me (and i have some friends who have done this) that you should be able to use that cable line to get those channels, but its not working.
My question is, is that true? Is that how people get those channels? I was under the impression that people who did that were lucky that it worked, but it wasn’t a guaranteed way to get television.
If this is how its supposed to work, then I guess I need to find someone to figure out what the problem is with that cable wire, right?
If this is not the standard way to get these channels, what is? How can she get these channels?
