Being in the Raleigh-Durham NC market and having access to OTA HD  
signals long before most areas of the country I figured this was the  
case. However, given all the crap that goes on with broadcasters and  
the FCC I wasn't sure if something was different somewhere else.  
Maybe a test market in NYC or such was using encrypted OTA.

Thankfully not.
