Is it true you can plug up your tv without a cable box and get free channels thru BrightHouse? This being without a converter box or bunny ears?

No. I think you are thinking about the ability to receive basic cable service for free on other outlets in your home when you have one cable box.

Or what may have happened (like what happened to me), was you move into an apartment, and the previous tenant never turned off their cable, so you get free cable for a month or two, before they turn off the service from lack of payment.

If you have basic cable, you don't need any 'boxes' you can get as many tv's with basic as you like with a single subscription price. It's the digital cable you need the boxes for and those are charged per TV set. But no, it's not free, but you don't pay per TV for the plain old basic service...just one fee, and you can have as many sets on there as you like so long as you have a cable run to each one.

If you live in a community like Independence then your receive basic brighthouse cable free of charge in your homes because it is covered as part of the owners HOA dues and is included. Otherwise I cant see how unless it is one of the scenarios posted above.
