From what I understand you cannot "unlock" any cable tv. Only satellite, reason is with cable tv there is a contstant 2-way communication btwn you and the company. So they can easily tell what you are watching (and they might even have some kind of rules setup that alert them if something fishy is going on)

With satellite you just receive, they can't find out anything about you (unless you have the phone cable plugged in)

What channels do you want to unlock? You can try to find a comcast box in your yard or in your neighbors yard. Open the box, find the cable that goes into your house. There might be a filter on your cable, just take it off.

They don't do that any more. That only works on analog cable. Comcast (at least in my area) doesn't have any premium channels on analog any more, they are all digital.

Comcast does not even do analog in my area so the only way to descramble them is with a cable box. On top of having to have the box the box no longer has a chip that tells it ti "descramble" but it's actually send with the tv programs if you account has it so there is pretty much no way to steal it anymore.
