Would it be reasonable and feasable for Comcast to switch the out of market locals which they carry in analog, over to the digital tier? Here they carry WCBS on ch 2, WNBC on 12, WNET on 13, WNYW on 15, and WABC on 25. That's five channels which carry much of the same programming as the local network affiliates. Granted, there will be some customers who prefer the NY local news, but they could get a digital box if they don't have one already. Are there contactual issues which would preven this? Five analog stations, that's a lot of bandwidth. Here on the bandwidth-starved Branford system, we sure could use something. We're still waiting for UHD, MHD, TNTHD, Golf/VSHD, much less any new HD channels Comcast may contract for. I don't think switched digital is a near term answer either. We probably wouldn't see that here for years. How are they going to compete with DirecTV, later THIS YEAR, if (and it is a big if) DirecTV really does start offering many many more HD channels???
