If they are forcing you to pay for an STB in order to receive what you get now 
you should report them to the government. They have said they want to know 
about any activity of that sort by the cable companies. They are trying to 
take advantage of the confusion over the digital conversion in order to pry 
more dollars out of their subscribers, and the FCC has said they want to keep 
an eye on that kind of thing.
