Very true...I'm lucky in that I'm between NY and Philly and can get
both using a rotor...awesome for NFL football by the way.  It's easy
for me to forget how many have a choice between pay TV and none.

Having said that, virtually nobody I encounter in this area (where
it's a great option) has a clue that you can even get HD TV on an
antenna.  Most people look at my funny when I describe it.  The fact
is that, at least around here, the DTV reception is way more reliable
than the analog ever was.
