I guess I'll be getting me a digital Antenna soon. OTA is much cheaper.

Get it while you can. I know AT&T, Comcast, and the likes have lobbyists trying to get OTA taken off the air.

OTA is not going away anytime soon. The basic networks, CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox all make money off advertising OTA. They would need to sign exclusive deals that pay them through the nose to make it worthwhile to shut down OTA broadcasts.

And you think NBC will be OTA once Comcast buys them?

Do you really think it won't?

OTA isn't going anywhere. Anyone stating otherwise really is "chicken little". There is no evidence it will be disappearing.

Do you have any sources on that? Would be a very interesting read.
