My new Vizio has an ATSC tuner integrated in its design. Is this new digital box Comcast is peddling necessary for me to receive HD signals?

I personally believe since this is the digital transition, Digital standard should be the standard and at least those channels should be broadcast in clear QAM. If you have an analog tv, you should get a digital converter box or have a filter put on your house to block the digital signals. You guys should be talking steps to try to encourage people to purchase digital tvs, not punish those who do. People purchased analog tvs with 125 channel tuners so they could get rid of their cable boxes and the same should be for digital.
I personally think you guys are making a huge mistake. The main reason why people are paying more for cable instead of switching to satellite is they can get the standard linup without the need for an additional box. Since you guys are now requiring us to get a digital box, there is no reason why I should not switch to satellite. Satellite is cheaper and has more HD channels. You guys are negating the only advantage you have over the competition!

Comcast should at least put all of the Basic and Expanded Basic HD on the cable, unencrypted.
And keep them in a stable digital channel slot.
If people don't want the premium services, they should be able to at least get the HD programming that all Basic and Expanded Basic content providers have without the need for a Comcast box.
