All Digital? You have been all digital since 2009...
Why is Cox Claiming that it is just now going all digital and that you need a new mini-box to get digital TV when the FCC switched All TV Broadcasting to all Digital a few years ago. Cox is already broadcasting in all digital.
"Digital Television is an advanced broadcasting technology that has transformed the television viewing experience. DTV enables broadcasters to offer television with better picture and sound quality, and multiple channels of programming. Since June 13, 2009, full-power television stations nationwide have been required to broadcast exclusively in a digital format." Source FCC.gov
So, is this a scam to force people to pay an extra $3.00 a month to rent a box they are forced to pay to maintain the service they have been using for many years by using a totally invalid excuse by Cox? Or is this a way to force you to pay to have Cox spy on you in your living room through the forced use of a set-top box for those of us who resist getting the new Smart TV that is admittedly spying on those who have it in their home?

So Cox. What is it, just a way to force a rate increase for your service, or a way to force your customers to pay to put a spy device in their own living room without their knowledge?
