Re: Say goodbye to ClearQAM

Currently, except in those areas where they may have obtained a waiver, Comcast must still abide by FCC rules that require them to provide the basic-tier digital channels in clear QAM so that the latest TVs with QAM tuners can still receive them.

However, the FCC has proposed eliminating this requirement (the subject of this thread, see: »www.multichannel.com/article/474···_Ban.php ) so that sometime soon, along with the "digital migration" that eliminates all the analog channels, you will most likely need to use a box of some kind to receive any TV service.

Yeah with TWCNYC I was getting NY1 (the cable news channel) and TBS-HD plus some other random news channels.
