This isn't entirely true.  Over the air (as in with an antenna) analog
signals are going away soon, because of the federal mandate.  The new
rules don't effect cable.  Of course, that's not to say that the cable
companies won't decide to faze the analog channels out on their own.

It was supposed to be so Easy.
