    Wow cable is converting the analog channels to digital and if you use Tivo and are in Chicago. The new line up is this. Tivo has not changed the line up yet for the program guild but you may start to see season pass not working as the old channels are phased out for all channels above channel 58 as of the start of phase 1 on the 18th of Jul 11
    phase 2, 8th of August and phase 3, 29th of August

    These are the Qam channels and Tribune is the comany Who sells Tivo the data.
    WHen I wrote to the Tribune via email they said they have no plans at this time to support the qam channels.
    So no guide with out upgrading to cable cards and basic digital package.

    Thanks for the info. I just noticed this change yesterday.

    I have a question. I have been subscribing to the limit basic package and for some reason I have been getting all the basic channels at no charge. Now I only get the Limited package Channels. Is there way to get the basic channels back without upgrading? I spoke with WOW and they said I was probably getting the basic channels by an error that they couldn't do anything about.

    Now that its digital they can prevent accidentally free channels from appearing. You'll only get what you pay for.
