Question for the US users:
I've heard that cable companies are required (by law? regulation?
agreement?) to include in their cable listing all stations that would
otherwise be accessible in that area OTA.
My question is - does that apply to just the content, or the actual
format too? In other words, if a station can be received in HD OTA, does
that mean that it will be received in HD via cable too? Or can the cable
company just provide that station in SD, even though OTA it's being
I'm asking because I need to decide whether it's worth the trouble to
install an antenna on the roof, or whether just using cable is fine.
