I'm told that there are specific FCC regulations stating that local OTA content must be non-encrypted. I can see why they would want to encrypt HBO/Starz/Cinemax/ect, but PBS & USA?
I was hoping that someone else would be able to verify that the locals are 5C encrypted as I have discovered before I take it up with Cox.
