I've recently moved into a new flat and ordered a UPC Connect Box. When I went to install it, I could not remove the plastic cover from what I assume to be the coax port. There is a message on the front that reads:
"Unerlaubtes entfernen dieser vignette hat verzeigung und schadenersatzforderung zur folge. Soll der anschluss wider in betrieb genommen werdern, melden sie sich bitte unter telefon 0800 668 866" I've attached a photo of the text.
I unfortunately do not speak German, so Google translate says it means there was some sort of unauthorized access and I need to call them to reinstate the connection. However, when I call, there's not an option for an English rep, so I'm not really sure what to do. Any advice on what's going on here would be greatly appreciated!

I found something about re-activating the 3-in1 cable connection:
But the link seems to be outdated and does not work.
Basic TV reception anyhow is included in all current products
Therefore if you have ordered and received the Connect Box to the location where the connection is sealed, i believe it's o.k. to unbreak and remove the seal.
(Thats my personal opinion. Please do not blame me for any troubles you could later have with UPC)

@neko If you want to clarify this via phone, don't worry, even if there isn't a english option. There are agents who speak english. You can choose german.
If you're in luck you get one speaking english instantly or he/she will connect you to one.
