I wasn't getting into that at all. Just dispelling the statement that people are all spending $3-4K on plasmas. Plenty of ways to get them cheaper with lower end models and close out deals.
But really, it was beside the point as a lot of cable cutters don't do it for budget reasons. If you don't like sports (which is the only reason I have DirecTV still) there isn't much reason to have cable/satellite these days as you can just wait and grab or rent the blurays and watch all at once (rather than waiting weeks/months between episodes) with superior A/V quality.
So plenty of plasma owners who watch locals OTA, so I could see the channel info feature being a worthwhile investment.
