The article reports that municipalities in Michigan got two injunctions blocking Comcast from requiring thousands of customers in the state to obtain a digital set-top box in order to view public, educational and governmental channels. Comcast had announced it would take advantage of a change in state law to migrate the PEG channels from analog to digital channel slots. The move would free up bandwidth to provide more HD programming and video-on-demand services.
