I have TimeWarner. Where I live the CSPANs, Government Channels, and
shopping channels are all considered "broadcast" channels and are
available via ClearQAM.  The channels that are marked copy once are 35
of the 40 of the basic cable channels (like ESPN, Discovery, TNT, TBS,
etc) and all of the digital only channels.
