Comcast digital migration comes to St. Louis Park on March 19; some TV's will not receive digital signals
On March 19 Comcast will convert the St. Louis Park cable system to an all-digital signal. Prior to March 19, Basic cable channels 2-23, 96 and 99 are provided as analog channels, and the rest of the channels are sent in digital format. This system conversion is called the digital migration.
After March 19, older, analog tube TV’s won’t be able to receive ANY cable TV channels without a Comcast digital converter or digital adapter (DTA).
For Basic cable customers, who pay about $13 per month for 40 standard definition channels, the first 3 DTA’s are free. Additional DTA’s are available for $ .50 per month for each DTA.
Most newer, flat screen TV’s will continue to receive Basic cable channels 2-23, 96 and 99 because they have a QAM tuner. Also, any TV already connected to a DTA will continue to receive Basic channels and the rest of the Standard cable channels like Fox Sports, ESPN & Fox News.
See the feature article in this Comcast newsletter for details:
