Maybe. But you still only get basic in SD. See, you can just connect your cable to your TV & get 200ch on Basic. But you wont get those low ones 1-15 without a comcast box.
well yeah, but at least you'll have some DVR capabilities. That's what you were talking about in your earlier post. If your DVR has IR blaster capabilities, you can go comcast box -> DVR -> TV and use an IR blaster to change the channels on the comcast box through the DVR.
The company says that the transition to encrypted cable will provide greater convenience for customers because the encryption will reduce the need for in-home appointments.
Greater profits for Comcast they mean. When Comcast migrated to digital, they gave each household up to two free digital converters. About a year later, they started charging $2.00 a month per converter even though it was required to receive the service you were paying to have.
I wonder if this includes or excludes local stations such as PBS, NBS, FOX, CBS and ABC? I thought cable companies were not allowed to encrypt those channels.
However, those using a Comcast set-top box or a CableCARD-enabled device won’t need the adapter, and those who need one will be able to get one for free for up to two years. After that, you’ll have to pay $0.50 per month per TV in your household. Only two adapters are aloud per household, though, so it seems you’ll have to pay out-of-pocket if you need a third or fourth.
BOLD ITEM NO. 1: That should remove the worry for those with HomeRun Primes, right?
BOLD ITEM NO. 2: His spelling needs work.
Most of those you can get online free but also should get with an antenna.
Discovery is the one that you require cable for or a box. But you can wait for those shows to be on Netflix.
I am aware I can get them with an antenna. I used one when they started broadcasting in HD and Comcast didn't carry the HD signal. I'd prefer not having to go back to using an antenna for them. I'm not worried about any other channels.
