I'm TW up near Green Bay, and yup, it's the same thing up here. Analog
from 2-71, with digital starting above that.  However, lately I've
been seeing more & more of the analog channels appear in QAM, usually
a whole bunch of them, all 480p, packed into a single channel. So
they're getting ready for the move to full digital. I just hope they
keep them in the clear... :-)
