"HDNet has not even been able to negotiate a deal directly with
Comcast, the nation's largest cable provider. The KRON deal
represents an end-run of sorts around that restriction."

I hope I didn't miss a detail somewhere, but I think they excluded generic
OTA
set-top boxes. The article said, "Only people with HDTV monitors or
HDTV-ready
set-top boxes from Comcast or a satellite company can receive the channel."

I think think that's an error. If KRON is digital OTA ... your box oughtn't
need to be
from Comcast.

Good point, if someone in the bay area with an OTA box can give us a report
on this we'd all be thankful.

Ah! Thanks. Just an oversight in the news article. Good.
