Nothing like that exists... For free or otherwise.


You cannot connect to a coaxial input and get and HD picture, for starters. But as well, there has to be some kind of signal decoder to pick up the signal and provide you with the service. And if that decoder is in place, it will have its own remote - it may be compatible with universal remotes, but most stock TV remotes are not universal.


There are alternatives to a cablebox: such as "Spectrum Stream" where you can subscribe to just the online app and you'll just need an internet connection... But there's no such thing as a free channel.

The biggest reason signals are encrypted in the first place is because of cable theft.
