Didn't they make it so a cablebox is needed even for basic cable?
Depends where you live. In Bronx/Brooklyn you need a box or CableCard device for every screen. Most everywhere else, you can get broadcast basic channels with a digital TV set. Anything above broadcast basic requires a box or CableCard in those areas.
I live in brookhaven on long island and I need a box for everything including basic cable.
