Can TV/Internet provider access my home laptop

Internet access
I get TV & Internet from same company. Two days ago they cut off service for late payment. While it was disconnected, my laptop couldn't play DVD. Haven't needed internet to play DVD in past. As soon as TV/Internet was reconnected that day, computer plays DVD with no problem. Can AT&T disable or access DVD player in my computer?


Software/Hardware used:
Uverse, internet explorer, windows media player, windows 7

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I doubt they would do that. You should not ever need the internet to play a physical DVD you purchased. If it’s a movie you purchased from them, and stored on their servers then yes you need the network to play them. That is the reason
i will not buy a movie from my cable provider. If I decide to leave them, how do I get my movies, will they mail me the actual discs??

    No, this is not possible, without remote access / some kind of illegal access. I think you have to ask the cause to the vendor.
