If your cable provider doesn't offer something similar, you can look into using streaming apps from various channels. Typically, you can activate them using your cable account and then stream while away from home. http://www.amc.com/activate/#/
Whatever option, you're going to need internet in both locations, and the house may need fast upload speed if you're streaming from the house to another location (Slingbox, or cable-provided streaming option like Fios QuantumTV).
Sling TV is limited to one stream at a time, so they may not care about location as much.
An HD HomeRun is designed to work inside a network, not over the internet, so the bandwidth can be high for a video stream, and it may need some careful network configuring to work over the internet, like a VPN. The HD Homerun Plus does do h265 transcoding, so that could reduce bandwidth needs. http://zatznotfunny.com/2014-07/streaming-cable-tv-via-hdhomerun...
This may not be what you are thinking about, but cable services like Comcast allow the cable subscriber to watch a selection of taped shows and even some "live" tv streaming, via the internet on a computer, when logged into their Comcast account.
In other words, via my Comcast account, on my computer I can watch some programs, for free. I expect that when using my computer in that way, the computer could be anywhere geographically, it wouldn't have to be physically located at the same address as the tv subscription/cable setup was based.
So in the apartment you could hook up your computer to a big computer monitor, or to a modern tv set (that has the plug-ins that make it easy to connect it to a computer), log in to the house's cable account online, and watch some programs that way.
There are also some channels that do offer programs, even live streaming, directly from their own websites over the internet, either with or without having to prove that you simultaneously pay for a cable subscription, such as PBS, TCM, and the UK's Sky News. I'm sure there are others.
