Smit: TWC Will Go All-Digital "We intend to go in at a fairly quick rate" and go all-digital, boost broadband speeds and roll out new services without many delays. "I would like to see a lot of the initiatives rolling out in the first year," he said... http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/comcast-cable-head-house-cards-687065

The recently digitized over the air channels are:Channels KTBN-TBN (Ch. 17). KSCHND (Ch. 18). KXlA-IND {Ch.19}. KVMD-IND (Ch. 23). KJlA-lATV {Ch. 28}.KDOC-IND {Ch. 29}. KPXN-ION {Ch. 3D}. KILM-FilmOn (Ch. 32) which require digital cable ready equipment accordingto TWC's official announcement. Count on TWC to mislead people into additional equipment they may not want.Just did another scan when even the remaining analog stations started coming in fuzzy like a low signal...
