Question re ATSC (QAM) tuners

I have 4 terminals..and 6 tvs

On the two tv's w/o the terminals, these are newer , LCD tv's (22" ; 32") with ATSC tuners and I currently get a whack of channels, some analog some digital.

Down the road ( a year??) when they stop analog, I assume I lose all those analog channels, correct?. If that's the case, I would likely for for a cheap OTA solution. These are 'occasional use' TV's.

See the following FAQ on QAM (not ATSC) signals:

FAQ - Can I get Digital Cable (and HD) Using My QAM Tuner?


Rogers is going to be stopping the analogue transmission of most, but not all, of the analogue channels, as discussed in the following sticky: The basic channels - roughly 2-29 will remain analogue for a while at least.

If you wish to discuss OTA, please read the following OTA welcome thread thoroughly and carefully. Then post in the appropriate thread of the OTA forum:
