I don't have a HD TV. I have cable. I was wondering if I buy a HD box, would I get any HD channel(s) through the cable company?

Why would you want HD channels with an SDTV? You can't get HD channels without paying for them, unless they are OTA channels.

I'm currently paying for a package deal with Comcast triple play for $99. I get the internet/cable/phone. I was debating wither to get a new HD TV or not. I don't know what I'm missing. I've heard that you can get channels in HD (if you have the reciever or built HD TV) other than the OTA HD channels. I'm not trying to steal cable, just utilized what comes with what I'm paying. I've seen some HD channels on a friend TV and he said they came up when he "scan" with the new TV. He also pay for the same package I pay for.

I got the same package, I love it
Yo can't view HD on an SD receiver
The size of your SD is 720x480
The size of HD perhaps 1920x1080
It will be all black screen

Maybe time to start saving for an HDTV
AKAI is a great cheap Plasma TV for about $500
Or Panasonic Plasma for about $1000
