Isn't comcast's plan to encrypt ALL the non-broadcast channels?


The point is that, historically, I have been able to record the channels in
question via analog cable.
Due to the mandate to change to digital, Comcast moved these channels to a
digital multiplex but still in the clear. Now the channels I am referring to
do have HD versions, but those have always been on encrypted streams. The SD
versions have been broadcast in the clear since long before I got into myth,
5-6 years ago.
Looking at their channel lineup they changed their starter package. While
all the channels I am mourning used to be in the starter package, they have
now been moved into an extended basic group.
