As long as you already have the antenna in place, I'd recommend
leaving it so if you decide to go for a satellite provider.  You'll
need different capture hardware for the satellite channels in any
case, and you can choose not to pay extra for your locals via
satellite.  Alternatively, you can get the locals via satellite in
addition to your OTA antenna and perform more simultaneous recordings
if you wish.

For cable, you might be able to use the same tuner card as you have
been for OTA, in which case this doesn't apply.
