Yes, everyone should consider the type of antenna first. Otherwise, it's like putting the cart before the horse.

As for OTA going away, I agree it won't happen, at least in the short term. However, broadcasters are being forced to rethink their business models.

Everyone needs to realize the importance of OTA television. Even if a viewer chooses to watch cable or satellite, it must be recognized that OTA provides at least some checks on the ever rising prices of paid television.

Consider this thought. If OTA television were to be eliminated in the future, paid/subscribed viewers would be that much more vulnerable to price increases from their cable or satellite providers. That scenario is one that I highly doubt the vast majority have considered or thought about.

Simply put, OTA broadcasting benefits everyone whether an individual uses a paid service or not.
