Filter. It was out on the pole but AT&T pulled it into the house when I got
my cable modem, which needs an unfiltered signal.

the broadband pass through. 

But it turns out that the price of the cable modem exactly matches the price
of analog TV + the reduced price on the cable modem (about $57/mo)
