Can anyone confirm if the TWC Starter TV package (20 or so local channels) is DRM free? I was thinking about the hdhomerun prime with the Channels app on Apple TV but it doesnt support DRM channels. Thanks

If by "DRM free" you mean "works without a DTA", then no.

I currently have the TWC "Starter TV" package and they went full digital and scrambled everything a few years ago. If you connect the cable directly to an HDTV without a DTA, it doesn't work.

I'll be dumping Starter TV shortly. As soon as I decide on an HDTV antenna to install in my attic.

I have a question for anyone in the Raleigh market with DirecTV who get WFMY and WGHP as "Significantly Viewed" channels. It appears large portions (or all?) of Chatham and Orange counties get those two channels in addition to the Raleigh locals.

Are these added channels (WFMY and WGHP) in HD in those counties, or just in SD? Are there any blackouts on them of network programming?

If they are available, it would be just like the Raleigh channels (HD).

According to the Directv website, WFMY and WGHP are not in HD. I lived near there for a while and got 3 VA channels as significantly viewed, all SD. WGHP and other Greensboro DMA stations are available in several counties in VA (as SV) but are HD there. It will never make sense to me. There were never any network blackouts in my experience with SV in the area, including sports on those channels.
