I have all analog equipment and I recently lost channels 8 and 12 (shopping channels), 75 (Tru TV), 76 (TVLand) and 99 (CSpan). A Charter guy told me these were moved and/or switched to digital only. This is done to free up more bandwidth. He said that sooner or later, everything might go digital so I'll have to get a box or a digital TV and a DVR instead of the old VCR (I'm kind of broke which is why I haven't upgraded.) He said he didn't know when this would happen.

Comcast did this in the SF area around 2009. I used to get analog 2-76 but they dropped analog 35-76. So I had to get a box.

By the way, do you have a list of Charter channels with the decimal points, if you have a digital TV but no box? I've only found lists with the whole numbers, for people who have a box.

I hate Charter. Every time I turn around, I lose a half dozen channels, but my monthly bill increases. Time to go satellite.

Not sure if satellite will make much difference in the long run. I think all this is driven by the media companies demanding more and more money from the cable & satellite providers, who then raise their rates, which then causes more people to stop paying for TV altogether. If it weren't for live sports, I'd ditch cable since I watch so little programming.

My reasoning for satellite is Charter's service is poor, at best. My cable goes out at least 3-4 times a day.
