For now you can still get non-digital tv direct from your coax cable 
regardless of your programming package however that is going to change 
in less than 2 years as the switchover to digital streams occurs. It may 
have already occurred in your area. After that I am afraid your only 
option is going to be an antenna or renting a STB from your provider. 
Yes this sucks and I can only hope the FCC wakes up and stops taking 
bribes (Not likely!) from the cable companies to limit our choices.

Good luck, at least I live close enough to a big city to get everything OTA.
