For my main TV, I have SECTV's STB with full HD service. With that, I do indeed get Versus HD and channel 531.
Now for my other TV, the one with the built-in digital QAM tuner, I can also say that I get Verus HD "in the clear".
However, with the QAM tuner, I have noticed other HD channels "in the clear" too, that are not available with the STB. Right now, these are the HD versions of the NYC broadcast stations (our SD 9,11, and 13).
The reason I even mention it, it does seem that sending digital channels down the cable, and allowing the STB to make them available, are two different things. Versus HD might be sent down the cable "in the clear", but SECTV doesn't have your STB's enabled to show it is available.
