alen writes "The FCC is now allowing cable companies to encrypt free OTA channels that they also rebroadcast over their networks.

"The days of plugging a TV into the wall and getting cable are coming to an end. After a lengthy review process, the FCC has granted cable operators permission to encrypt their most basic cable programming."

Soon the only way to receive free OTA channels via your cable company will involve renting yet another box or buying something like Boxee"
