HOT to Pull the Plug on Analog Customers

Tens, or even hundreds, of thousands who have illegal cable hookups to be cut off.

Cable company HOT is closing down its analog services and switching to digital only. The move may not affect most subscribers, but tens of thousands, or possibly even hundreds of thousands, who have hooked up illegally to cable signals will be cut off - and forced to buy a subscription to cable or satellite services. HOT's plan is to shut down analog service over the next year.
