My understanding is that the only things Comcast is sending in Clear QAM 
in Greater Boston are the local broadcast channels. Since you live in 
Newton that's not terribly valuable, as you could receive those with a 
simple antenna. But I'm not a Comcast customer and can't offer any 
first-hand experience.
