I haven't heard of anybody encrypting the OTA broadcast channels. That is
against the law (I know, that doesn't stop them in other areas). Where
things get fast and lose is with all of the other channels. A few places
will carry all of their basic cable programs in the clear while other will
encrypt everything except the OTA channels. I am sorry I am not in Denver,
so I can't help you with those other channels, but it is safe to assume that
you will be able to get the OTA channels in the clear.
