Re: Free basic cable and boxes

said by Dodge:

CV is calling me every day offering free basic cable and free cable box to go along with it until 2014 (I have OOL and OV from them right now). They are saying something about antennas not working anymore as of 12/12. Is there a catch somewhere, or should I just take them up on this, since free is free?

Either you or them misunderstood something about them switching to digital signal/encrypting all channels(including broadcast basic)
Or they intentionally lying/misleading you to sell service.

It could be a promo where bundling nets it free, and the boxes would be free from the digital conversion. I have no idea if such a promo exists.

CV has no bearing on antenna channels, so you probably would have heard something locally in the news/newspaper if there were changes to OTA reception. You can check channel lineup for basic and see if it's beneficial to you to get service through CV. It would give access to free on demand, too.
