You are correct. By 2008, all providers must be sending digital signals. This will only affect people that:
A) Do not have a digital cable box
B) Do not have a digital tuner built into their TV
What this means, is you will either have to upgrade your basic cable and get their box or buy a TV with a digital tuner.
They are pushing for more HD broadcasts but the cost of the equipment and upgrades will make it unrealistic to set such an early date for total conversion.
