Demarc point

I just cancelled all of my Shaw services as I'm planning to go OTA.

I want to rewire my house with new RG6 coax (and have already bought a box of cable) but am wondering about the demarc. I'd like to have a place to put the wires in, but I don't want to have to worry about Shaw coming around and cutting my wires.

There's an electrical distributor not too far away here that has datacomm stuff, so I could just get my own box. What I'm wondering is if I put up my own box with my new house wiring will Shaw just deem it their own and lock me out of it?

No on both counts. My Shaw service wasn't run from a demarc box, and I wouldn't consider an outdoor 4-way splitter installed by the technician 10' up to be "accessible by the homeowner".
