"Comcast is transitioning away from analog to digital." -- It's probably more correct to say that Comcast's sales division is pushing for their customers to transition from analog to digital, simply because it gives them another chance to pitch their "Triple Play" lineup, as well as taking a shot at getting people with DVRs to sign up for their own service. Rest assured they've got no plans to actually turn off the analog stuff anytime soon as long as there's old people who haven't upgraded their sets around. -- Dagmar d'Surreal 01:59, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

This isn't just a "sales" push. They will be removing the analog channels to free up space for more HD and VOD content. They have been calling every customer and sending them up to 2 free converter boxes if they don't have a digital ready TV.

FYI, this article applies equally well to Suddenlink Cable in my area. Am I the only one using a different company or should we change the article to something like "Cable TV Users and scte65scan?" Doomedtx 14:17, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

I decided to change it since it definitely applies to more than one cable company. I doubt there will be any serious issues with the move. I also changed the title to be more in line with Wiki guidelines (which don't necessarily apply here but why not clean up while moving?). Doomedtx 14:59, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
