Cancellation of cable tv in rented flat
Hi Folks,

I've been paying for cable tv through my nebenkosten for years but since I don't use it, I'd like to give notice to my landlord to cancel it. I seem to remember a post from years back pointing to a proforma letter which can be submitted as cancellation notice to landlords, unfortunately I can no longer find this on the forum.

Is there anyone who has done this or who can point me in the right direction?

Thank in advance.

Or here the version specific for when billed through Nebenkosten:

Kündigung meines Kabelfernseh-Anschlusses

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren

Hiermit kündige ich meinen Kabelfernseh-Anschluss. Bitte melden Sie das dem betreffenden Kabelanbieter umgehend. Normalerweise erlauben die Kabelanbieter eine Kündigung des Anschlusses bereits auf Ende des Folgemonats ab Mitteilung des Vermieters.

Ich bitte Sie, dies in meiner Nebenkostenabrechnung zu berücksichtigen, sobald die Kosten für meinen Anschluss wegfallen.

Für die Plombierung meines Anschlusses bin ich auf der Telefonnummer [YOUR Daytime Phonenumber] erreichbar, die Sie bitte an den Kabelanbieter weiterleiten.

Besten Dank für eine Bestätigung der Anpassung der Nebenkosten.

Freundliche Grüsse


+-+-+ END OF LETTER +-+-+

You will still pay the same amount per month, but it should no longer show up in the yearly Nebenkosten bill from the date the socket got sealed.
Means you will get back money or have to pay less.
