I have 2 of Comast 3 services HI speed and phone service. When the Tech installed the cable back in 2004 in my house I was getting a local cable service, but it was not stong enough for the high speed internet. So the installing tech did a regual install, But I ask him about my local TV channles. What the TECH did was he didn't put a Filter to keep out the TV channels. Now I have gotten a LCD TV Samsung 750. And It can get some DTV channles. My question is do I need a cable box becasue the cable go directly into the TV, it clear scrambled channel, and there are some HDTV channles.After the switch over the HDTV Fed 19 will I need a cable box.
I think yo'll only get the digital channels not the analog
I got Time warner at work They already started to drop out some channels like Cartoon Network, Nick and Disney, Animal Planet I got Cablevision at home Cablevision so far did not drop any analog channels yet
But I also heard on the news yesterday Feb 19th maybe extended to June 12th Cuz there is not enough fed money to subsidize all viewers purchasing digital boxes
