I bought 3 years ago a HDTV LG and one junkie blue antenna with amplifier. I cut the Rogers cable and since months my TV is for freeeee ! Now I have Netflix (with LG Smart TV device) for some variety of movies and shows for $8 a month. This month I try to change the internet provider and next year I'll change the mobiles provider for sure (after my 3 years contract).
From my point of view this is my response to the big guys : you don't help me in those hard times, I don't give you my money anymore. I rather prefer to give it to other guys who begin from scratch, at least.
So OTA means for me another approach over my life and my family: to free my mind, spirit and pay less bills! Of course is difficult to jump over my shadow, but sometimes it woorks
I'm very happy to see, time to time, that more and more people say NO, simple as that!
