Digital Converter Box Help!!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So Im looking to buy a digital converter box for myself to not pay monthly for channels from a service provider. I have a few questions to begin with, as well as picking out the right box for me. My first question is will I still get channels like ESPN and FX with a quality digital converter box? That is my main concern because that is mainly what I used to watch an nothing more. My second question is if I get a quality HD converter box from say Motorola, will it work out of the box and unscramble the channels for me, or do I have to do something more? Last but not least, what is the M-Card for?

I have my eyes on this box from Motorola, but I am open to other ones as well.

I hope my questions will all be answered soon!

No, you will still have to pay for service to get those channels.

digital converter only gets you basic local channels. espn and fx both cost money. you could however invest less money and get webtv, which just uses your interwebz to watch shows.
