This may be accurate info, but I'm highly skeptical of it for two reasons:
1. I believe all cable co's are federally mandated to carry basic ch's in analog till 2012? 2014? Something like that.
2. If they do go "all digital" then they must provide cable box's (converters) for any/all customers on any/all analog TV's in their home free of charge.
I hope you received accurate info, but I wouldn't count on it.
#1. is true for MSOs that keep any
Analog; IOW, they don't go all
-Digital. The date you are thinking of is 17 Feb. '12, probably changed to 12 June '12.
#2. is true except the boxes don't have to be free. However, free or fee
is just an accounting game, as to whether they itemize the boxes or not, they still cost the customer $.
