I cut the cable cord many years ago and setup a Mythtv box. We recorded 
OTA exclusively for several years in addition to Amazon Prime and 
Netflix. Though I do not try to record from those streaming services. I 
see them as just another library of stuff to pick from, similar to Myth.
A couple of years back we added Dish's flex pack to get HGTV and a few 
other good (at least we consider them to be) channels. At $35 a month it 
seemed a good deal and far less than cable. Those we record via an HDPVR 
to Myth.

For my family's viewing habits I can't see the need to record any 
streaming shows. We just stream them when we want to watch.
