wow.... Completely off-topic response, but how cool is that? It had
never occurred to me that cable/sat companies could/would pump their
signals OTA once Digital TV becomes pervasive. What are the logistics
of decoding those shows? I'm assuming they must provide a proprietary
receiver. Are they encrypted over the air?
