so? IIRC, the BD site said they'd give you the antenna for free? if they charged a monthly fee for that, you could buy an unrestricted atsc usb tuner for under $50 outright..
I think the point being was if you have access to the airwaves, then streaming isn't so bad.. however the broadcasters apparently don't see it like that... but this genie is WAY out of the bottle.. you can find cable-tv channels streaming in grey market websites besides the authorized streaming which, if you have a cable subscriber's PW can get into..
nevertheless.. the revenue model will have to more heavily rely on advertising.. since they're geting more eyeballs (legally or not), the ad rates will just have to go up..
