If you live in the suburbs, the filter is probably in the distrobution box by the curb. Go take a look at the box, most likely it is locked and it probably has a federal felony warning on it. Read this warning carefully - this is not the "You will void the warrenty on your Xbox" type of warning, this is a "You will be going to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison" warning. This isn't the realm of being a smart hacker, it's basic breaking and entering and theft.
Now if the filter is plainly visible, mounted to the side of your house, hey go ahead and remove it... Just first become familiar with the difference between a filter and a coaxial grounding block, which is supposed to be there for a good reason and does not block any signals. Cable companies are not as dumb as they used to be and chances are the filter is nowhere on your property you can easily get at. The best way to get it removed is to pay them the monthly fee to remove it.

First thing first make sure you tell your cable company that you are doing this. All this shit I'm about to show is for education purposes only. I'm not responsible in anyway. Just showing you how so if anyone for some weird reason asks u say hell yea I know it cause I'm smart!
Only some places have the filter in a box most of them are put up by powerlines almost all home. So Apt and townhouses is the place to look for the box.
1. Open the Box Either break the lock(your risk) or some of them just simply open.
2. When you look in the box its going to be one big messy son of a bitch. Like in the pic below.
Now there should be tags on each wire that have your Address label on them. Find your label and boom you found the filter.
3. The filter looks like a silver rod. But is sometimes protected around with plastic.
That's what your looking for.....
4. Breaking the motherfucker is hard cause those sons of bitches are glued. Get a screw driver and the top part should be a opening where the Rod(filter) is in break that plastic tube by put the screw driver in and bending the plastic. Eventually it will crack. Once you have tooken the plastic of you have to Take that other side of the line and reattach it to the splitter where everyone's sharing all the channels..
Now connect the Main black wire to the splinter.
And Your Done.
Now the cable company cant tell if you did it or not. The only way they would find out is once a year they do a check and if they see you stole it they put the filter back on. You cant get in trouble unless they catch you in the act of doing it which you are not cause you would be breaking the law. once again this is just to show you how by doing this you are breaking the law and will get your ass raped in prison.
Here is what it looks like without the plastic.
REMEMBER THIS IS JUST EDUCATION PURPOSES IF YOU DO ANYTHING LIKE THIS YOU WILL GO TO PRISON. PAY FOR YOUR CABLE JUST LIKE EVERYONE DOES.

Take pics lots of pics of ur yard the pole everything..
Ps: I know what ur saying its almost impossible to twist it Trust me though keep trying use tools to grab it and ur going to do it. Just make sure u hang on u dont want to fall... ITs Glued
The first time I did it i cut it off I had no choice but after 2 years they put it on agian and I got it of in a piece I guess cause a hour he left the glue was fresh. all i can think of is cut the thing and get a double cap which is like the needle goes in one side and u can stick another cable in like --------)0(---------- The arrows are cable caps after u cut it of.
So cut ur wire the back filter part... Buy 2 caps for coax and a double side cap also 1 foot of wire to replace what you cut.
Line t your house connecting to the new line u cut to pass over the filter.
Shit where are you from if ur near me ill just drive down there..
