the myth is will existing cable subscribers need any extra equipent to continure reciveing cable tv services? the answer is obvisously yes if your cable service shuts down analog.
Once again this has nothing to do with TV station going digital. I think some cable companies are telling their customers they need set-top box, so they can move the process along to shut down there analog service. I would say most cable systems will have analog for many years to come.

How does FIOS deliver channels in analog?
I have been told that the old FiOS system had an analog signal that modulated multiple channels of analog TV onto the RG-6 distribution system in the house. This way cable-ready analog TV sets worked without a digital box.
I have no confirmation or first hand experience.
