I know comparing feeds is pretty subjective, but I disagree a little on the 30% better OTA. CBS, ABC and NBC seem to me to be pretty darn close to equal, maybe a little better OTA but I wouldn't say a third better.
PBS though, I find to be close to a third better via OTA.
This is just my opinion...and I don't even know if it's possible to compress one station but not the others.
And I'll agree with you on the last point Kippjones...at least they are passing through the HD...competition cannot be a bad thing.
At what point though do we start to raise our expectations and stop saying, "oh well, at least it's HD" and start saying, "it's HD and it should be better".?
IOW, when should we begin to expect more instead of the slow to non existent trickle of information and mis/non-information that Comcast has been feeding us for over a year now.
