Re: RCA has a tablet that receives OTA TV

Meh! I'd rather watch the games I want, not the game my stupid local affiliates want me to watch. The DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket app is a better than this. Although the TV tuner could come in handy for Fox Saturday Baseball.

if one has DirecTv and Sunday Ticket. Most don't. Also most people are happy with watching the home team.

Living in an area that doesn’t have a professional football team (Buffalo, NY), I’ll take anything. On a typical Sunday our NFL options in Western NY include our hometown Div III NCAA team that masquerades as an NFL team, and the New York Giants who I despise.

As a fan of football in general, not of any specific team (I can no longer support the Bills until they make some serious big time changes), NFL Sunday Ticket is the best thing since sliced bread.

Don't worry by 2020 the Bills will be in Toronto so they won't be your problem anymore.

I would have said sooner than that, but a 7 year lease on the stadium was just signed. Even if the team were to move to Toronto, they'd still probably be our 'home' NFL franchise and we'd get them on TV. Now if they move to LA, that would be another story. This football team is absolutely disgusting, I actually would be in total favor of the Bills leaving if there was a guarantee that in 5 years down the line we’d be awarded an expansion franchise and have the team come back as a totally new organization with no ties to the previous one like Cleveland. The LA Bills can get credited with those four straight Super Bowl chokes led by an overrated quarterback who never even wanted to be here to begin with. And who knows SoCal may be good for them. Look at the LA Clippers, it only took them 33 years after they left Buffalo to become relevant in the NBA

by 2020 the FCC will have pawned off every last bit of TV spectrum so it can sit unused in the hands of Verizon and AT&T and OTA tuners will no longer have a use.

God we can only hope! I cannot wait for the day when useless OTA TV is gone. Other than sports, I see very little value in over the air TV. Content would be so much better if the creators didnt have to abide by FCC rules pertaining to 'obscenity'. You really cant compare critically acclaimed series like Boardwalk Empire, Homeland and American Horror Story with the latest shit that ABC, NBC and CBS are peddling. As series that I watch on the networks, CBS primarily, end or get canceled, Im watching less and less network TV as its all formulaic junk with little to no creativity for the most part. Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, 2 Broke Girls and Blue Bloods along with the Animation Domination block on Fox are the only shows Id miss OTA TV broadcasting ceased tomorrow. Id rather have the spectrum sit there and do nothing then keep the dying medium of OTA TV alive.

Actually it was a 10 year lease with a buy out after 7 years for $10 mil. which is why I said 2020. If the Bills were really interested in staying in the city they wouldn't have made it so easy to leave in 7 years. By the LA will have their team. Besides Toronto is one of the largest cities in North America.

A) Please. The FCC is not auctioning off all the OTA TV. In fact not even most of it. The FCC at best will get 80 MHz and probably closer to 60 Mhz. Just looking at UHF, OTA currently has 222 MHz.

B) The mobile companies will not sit on that spectrum. That is FUD. Verizon is using ALL of it 700 MHz spectrum for LTE that it got in the auction in 2008. That's why later this year they will deploying the AWS spectrum they just got from the cable complies a few months ago because they are squatting on it.

Can you at least provide FACTUAL information when you post something.

The HD on the Comcast system where I live is pretty decent. It all depends on how much bandwidth the system has available. Our system shut off all the analogs in 2010 and the deployed a lot of HD at the same time.
