And right now TWC has gone totally digital in the Raleigh, NC area and it doesn't affect those that have ten year old sets. The government will never allow the masses to come home to non-functional televisions.
Based on the comment about when "analog channels are finally shut down forever". If someone has an old analog set how would it handle a digital signal from a Cable company without a converter? I'm confused
