    OTA will never be a realistic goal where I live, streaming is iffy most of the time because I am limited to 1.5, so I went back to Dish, so I can watch the 6 channels that matter to us. There is always a trade off to living remote, but we have been here for over 20 years now, so I guess we are used to paying more and being underserved!
    I'm like Mr.MT..Don't like the 100 bucks a month (Dish); but the pine trees kill the signal..

      I think OTA is already a reality now. As people are ditching cable TV, OTT services are gripping the market with easy payment and content network selection. With the internet reaching remote places, I think OTT services are a great way of streaming.

        Cut the cable 10 years ago and mounted an old style 5' wide directional antenna on same roof mount that had been previously used for the Direct TV dish (also used the same direct TV coaxial cable running into the house). I live a few miles West of Detroit and can easily pull all local stations along with Toledo, OH and Windsor, CA. Currently pulling 48 free OTA channels, although a fair number of the Toledo stations show the same prime time programming as Detroit.
        We also use a Roku to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime and Youtube content, which, despite all the free OTA channels, is 95% of what we watch.

          Think we understand what your saying, but OTT isn't streaming

            Yes, I know. It's a way we can watch TV without cable TV and Antenna. Hulu, Sling, Youtube TV are OTT way of streaming TV.

              And this thread is why I'm unemployed today....

              but agree. Now way in hell I would pay for what we get for free now. When they fire my wife (acct is in her name) we won't continue service. I'll miss my Sunday ticket, but maybe my Chiefs will do well enough for a few years to keep showing up on national games.

                When we cut cable and satellite TV, we lost some shows we liked, not many though. However, it doesn't take long to get used to what you have and settle into new shows OTA. And the cost is perfect. We get 24 channels OTA. Yes some are not much to watch, but others are really nice. Works for me, to coin a phrase from Hunter!
