At the end of 2006, Comcast in York seems to have re-encrypted the over-the-air channels. This is a shame because that seemed to be Suscom policy, Comcast put the over the air in the clear late in...

On Comcast in York, so far all I get is Fox 43 digital, the weather sub channels for the locals (8 & 27), some kind oddball channels. Suscom broadcast nothing in the clear so I will give Comcast...

I didn't even consider cost, as I have a pretty small room. One nice aspect of the channel is you can just push on it a little to retension it. I banged an adjacent wall and slackened the material....
