If we let OTA be thrown under the bus it'll be the last nail in the coffin for any kind of free video media. The pay TV folks have been trying to kill broadcast television since the '70s when cable reps would come to town and talk about the blight of OTA antennas they would miraculously make disappear and lobbied hard for zoning and planning ordinances which prohibited them in exchange for All Things Golden from cable TV. Since then they've used the boiling frog business plan where if you slowly take away everything you've promised nobody really notices they're being screwed.
