I got a message on my cable box a couple of weeks ago saying I would need dta box to view upper channels after April 7th.
Got the box but the channels are still coming into regular TV without box.
Will the box work for the analog channels? Or do they need to be digital before I activate?
Internet is already docis 3 .

On most if not all Comcast systems, the analog and digital channels are simulcast together on the cable. The digital has been there for quite a while already, so it won't affect when the DTA's are activated. The simulcast systems are technically called "ADS" systems.
The DTA has a digital tuner only, as is all recent model full set top boxes.
If the analogs are still there after Comcast said they would be gone, is just one of those deals when they get around to it, their gone.

Depending where you are in Douglas County (I'm guessing Highlands Ranch) the digital transition began on April 7th, launching in Parker, Castle Rock, and Lone Tree. I believe Highlands Ranch is scheduled for a Mid to lat May launch.
