Resolved Question:

If the main cable box for my neighborhoods cable is in my front yard and was never asked permission or compensated for allowing this do I have any rights on that box. Like getting the cable free or removing the box out of my yard.

If the cable company has an easement on your property for the box, then they owe you nothing. If they do not have an easement then they are trespassing. You can negotiate with them to allow them to keep the box on your property. Good luck.

You and I have not entered into an attorney/client relationship, and I am not
responsible for your legal rights. The only way for us to be in an
attorney/client relationship is if you have signed a written retainer agreement
with my law firm.

Expert:  J D Haas replied 9 years ago.
Yes. On your deed or title if someone has rights to use your property that is called an easement. You might need to look at your title or go to the county recorder's office and review your title to determine if there are any easements on your property. Or, you could contact the cable company, tell them that they are trespassing, and ask them if they would like to negotiate with you about keeping the box. If they say they have an easement, have them send you proof of the easement.
