I kind of doubt that. The reason is that (at least Adelphia and now
Comcast) they charge for analog and then an additional charge for
digital. For me this is $55 / month for analog and I believe it is $20
to $30 more to upgrade to digital. If they pushed everyone to digital
they would have to lower these rates...
