Blame the NCAA and the bowl committees for this. They're the ones that decided that the extra money from cable broadcasts is more important than people being able to watch ota.

Eh, not really. WADL has some of the worst programming in the Detroit market. Even Antenna TV has gone down a bit in the last year or so.

The majority of cord-nevers are 18 - 28 year olds with low paying jobs who live off their over-priced cell phone plans. Just the demo I would market to.
