I wouldn't be supprised if all the major TV services were losing subscribers right now, lets face it cable/satallite isn't neccesarly cheap esp for HD packages. I could see a lot of HD consumers going F-OTA in these uncertain times.

I will be canceling my cable, as I do every year after football and the fall season of new shows is over, at that point I will check my OTA signal in Feb to see if the boost in digital signal strength has provided me with the channels I couldn't get before (namely the ones that football games are broadcast one) and if I can now get the local network stations I want, I will never pay for TV service again.

Paying $60 a month to watch TV is stupid. There is nothing on that is worth $720 a year to watch.
