    Does Charter still have a package that only includes local channels?

    And does that include the local RSN? And is it HD?

    Good morning,

    We definitely have basic packages available that include locals only. To access HD you will either need a tv with a QAM tuner or a STB. I'm assuming by RSN you're referring to the regional sports network. These are generally carried on the expanded basic package. Was there anything else that we can assist with today?

    If you have internet only from Charter, just split the line to your cable modem and scan it for open QAM. In most markets you will get all of the local channels in HD but no analog at all. (Same stuff you'd get with a OTA antenna).

    I just called up a Charter rep and he said they no longer offer local only packages because of the transition to digital. Is this accurate?

    Most cable companies offer a "lifeline" plan.

    Do you current have internet though Charter? If so, split your cable modem line and scan it for QAM, you might have free digital locals depending on your market.
