But if you read that, that is talking about after the Digital transition in 2006. It says earlier in the document that if a station has ananalog and digital signal, it is at the discretion of the cable company during the transition up until the the point of all digital for OTA broadcast to carry either one. So they do not have to carry both analog and digital on their basic tier, just one for the time being. Meaning they can make the digital counterparts for the off-air stations encrypted because they are still offering their analog counterparts in basic. Now when 2006 comes around, the situation will change, but as you can see its 2004, so thats 2 years away and there are still things that have to be met so that the analog broadcast of OTA stations gets shut down in 2006, the biggest thing being an 80% adoption rate of HDTV across the US by consumers and broadcasters.
