Help me Understand Analog Vs Digital Cable

First I have 2 TV's. One has a QAM tuner and one is just a Panasonic LCD with only Analog Tuner.

I stick a straight cable from my cable provider in and both receive Channel 1-70 but the Sony also picks up HD and other Digital programming from channels like 72.7 110.4..etc.

I sort of get that, but here is what I do not get: The cable company website says that channels 24- 69 are 'Digital" Why do I receive them at all on the Panasonic? Further, what will happen in February? I like running without a Cable Box because I have DirectV as well. My cable feed is for Internet and just happens to have a lot of basic TV on it. What is going on and if you know why I get these channels in the first place, I would be interested in that as well - I never ordered Cable TV - just Internet, but I dicovered it. Again - will it all be gone in February?? I am very confused - thanks
