When my wife an I bought our house, we decided to not have cable.
When our children arrived there was three off-air channels that had children's programming.
Now we have a 26" Sharp HDtv - it works nicely.
I can receive thirteen NTSC stations; twelve are duplicated by ATSC signals.
I can receive thirty ATSC signals - there are some channels that have three or four sub-channels.
I have no reason to go to cable; and will not.
We estimate that we have saved over $600 per annum; antenna cost less than $200 to mount sixteen years ago.

Cable TV Addiction reminds me of the old expression -once the kids have seen the big city, its hard to keep them down on the farm...
