That'll depend on your location.  I've got Comcast now (was Adelphia),
and the public (OTA) stations are unencrypted.  The stations I could
tune w/ my pcHDTV3000 were: ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS.   But, this seems
to be dependant on where you live.

I believe there's a list of HD-over-cable channels over at avsforums.
Do a search on this list (via gossamer-threads) and I'm sure you'll
find the reference.
