Well, then I guess it isn't Comcast corporate policy, if there are exceptions.
Just a general guideline.
While, I know CSRs have tried to sell Std. and Digital Classic just to get HD Locals, I never heard of people who objected, that didn't eventually get it with just Basic, by showing the price card. But, I can't aware of all Comcast systems, just what I read on AVS.
I guess it is possible that they won't rent out the HD STB with just Basic in some area(s), but one could use their own QAM TV or STB, unless they are an exception and encrypt the HD Locals; I have heard of this on rare occasions and when they told Comcast they corrected it. But, again, I am not aware of all Comcast systems.
