This map reflects the areas where cable service is available in Seattle from Comcast, Wave and CenturyLink. For residents living in apartment or condominium buildings, the options for cable service providers can be limited by existing service agreements between a cable operator and the building owner or condo association, as well as the capacity of internal cable wiring in the building. For questions about the cable service options available for your building, talk with your landlord or condo association.
