Hello all,

I hope you'll have understanding if I post in English, my Dutch is far from fluent.

I am about to move in a new apartment and wanted to take my Ziggo all in one plus with me. Yet, Ziggo told me that their system shows no own AOP (Green coax cable) for my apartment.

The apartment is in a house which has been divided into four apartment on each floor. My apartment will be on the top floor. I saw that there is a TV socket in the apartment, yet, I couldn't verify yet that there is no green coax behind it.

Thus, I called my landlord. And here is where the funny part begins:

He told me that the apartment on the second floor does have a Ziggo connection and that I could share their internet and TV. This however is out of the question for me, first of all, I am certain that the connection will be slow and I don't want to be dependent upon someone else. Also, I'd like to continue using my hd recorder, yet, I wonder how I would even share their TV.

I told my landlord that I want to call ziggo and explain the setup of the coax cables in the house to them and ask them if they could extend the green coax cable to my top apartment. Yet, he said that the doesn't want me to call Ziggo, it would be a bad idea :shock:

I am not sure whether he fears that they break open the walls in order to extend the cable to the top apartment or whether their cable setup themselves might be in breach with ziggo policy.

My question thus is, what are the options I have to get ziggo up to my apartment. What would have to be done in order to get the green coax in my top apartment without having to go through the second floor apartment which already has ziggo and where my landlord does not want me to let ziggo work in ?

Thank you all for your help !

i guess: the apartments aren't official split.

possible they also share meters for the gas, water and electricity ?

You can just pull a CAT5 cable from the other appartment to yours or use wifi for the internet. And yes, just extend the tv cable from the other apartment will be fine, it carries both analog and digital signal. You might want to add an amplifier and use good quality coax cable, to minimise signal loss and thus bad reception.

My guess is that your appartment does not have an official connection. Such a connection can be made but it's expensive. So that's why ,presumably, your landlord is scaring you off.
Still want internet or TV from Ziggo? Get that connection or, and I know it's what you want, share the connection

It seems that the tv/internet installation in all appartments is not what it should be.

Getting tv/internet by cable or dsl/vdsl (Ziggo or KPN) will not be easy if we read the comment of the landlord.

Realising both options requires an official entry of your appartment in their databases. If that is not the case (as you claim it is not with Ziggo), I doubt whether an DSL provider is available.

I would suggest that you contact the people who rent the other appartments. Often this more usefull than asking this forum.

And if money is an issue, cancel your Ziggo subscription asap. Ziggo will not be able to perform a "move" to your new apartment.
