Comcast Corporation Informative - Don't Listen To The Rumors
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- OK Guys I am a network tech for Comcast and Comcast will continue to broadcast in the analog format after Feb 2009. Look at it realistically. The box manufacturers do not have the capability to produce enough boxes to satisfy the demand of every non-boxed TV we serve. Plus the fact that the broadcasters will no longer broadcast in analog will generate more customers for us. Right now we already receive all these broadcast in a digital format and convert them into analog to serve the customers so we have the equipment.
Also it takes over three years to recover the cost of a box through rental fees. These are the facts.
