Are you in the US.? I thought cable companies were required by the FCC now to provide self-install packages.
Some do not, due to the problems that happen a lot of times, when people attempt the Cable Card install themselves. Most times it is that the company would like to remove the liability from the customer, and if there are problems, have the tech on site to resolve.
As for the OP, you may be able to entice them into a credit towards X amount of months, if you let them know that you are on a limited income, and may end up having to disconnect, due to you cannot afford the extra costs toward the Cable Card Install, etc..
