Oh, I know. What happened was, when I moved, my new apt. had no cable. So I ordered limited basic, the guy came, and then I had expanded basic but they began charging me for limited. Clearly the tech screwed up, so how can they know that I'm receiving extra channels? That's my real question.
As far as QAM, in Rhode Island it's limited to the networks and PBS, which they've just recently stopped broadcasting in HD for some reason.
