You're in Southern California, so I'd have to say that cheap isn't going to get you what you want.
But in the end, it all comes down to being specific. OTA isn't great for sports, especially if you're a baseball fan. There's less baseball on OTA now than there was 15 years ago. The Angels are cable exclusive unless they're on FOX Saturday baseball. The Dodgers have KCAL, but they're probably on there less than 30 times. I think the Padres are cable exclusive as well. You'll have Olympics coverage on NBC, but it won't be as extensive as their cable coverage, and none of it will be live for us.
If you're a Lakers fan, they are moving to a new Sports network being started by Time Warner, thus they will not be on OTA anymore except for the ABC Sunday games.
There's plenty of newscasts in the LA/OC market. KCAL has 3 hours of prime time news, FOX 11 has an afternoon news show along with their morning and night offerings. KTLA has several newscasts throughout the day.
