Of the approx. 15 OTA HD channels in my program guide, 5 are encrypted and
the rest are not. I guess we'll see how lucky I am when they call me back
Meanwhile, I have a question on something else you wrote in your

Sorry, no - all the HD digital channels are encrypted except for the OTA
stuff (except as noted). I didn't check every SD digital channel, but of
the ones I checked, they were encrypted. I don't subscribe to premium movie
channels, but I'd suspect they're encrypted, since things like ESPN-HD,
Discovery-HD, etc are.
