I use a HDHomeRun Connect. I can watch OTA on all my network connected devices. I use Plex Server to watch live TV at my Nags Head property. Cord cutting is the only way to go.

So I was doing a random OTA scan today (setting up an extra TV for NFL Sundays ) and we have 22 OTA channels now !!

Didnt realise there were that many subchannels, channels I never heard of lol .

Also does HR not have a "Heros & Icons" ?

Kinda miss that channel when I was up north and had it. They play a lot of trek

Wow... I can't believe stuff like this is still being tracked. I remember years ago it was a big deal for providers to carry the most HD channels...

Well... it has been AWFULLY slow now. I think these OTT services (YouTube, Hulu, etc) will start becoming the norm - could help too...

For us, the content isn't there. I watch NFL games, and some other sports when they are in the playoffs and wifey (and kids) watch some network programming. On top of that, not all 4K stuff is not being shown w/ HDR (we don't have an elaborate home theater setup either. Plus, we sit 14/15 feet from our 65" tv...) Can't justify it... yet...

I still have DIRECTV where I have their off-air tuner connected to the STB. DIRECTV could drop all the locals and I would still be able to view and record them... We HAD 6 STBs with DTV. I deleted 3 of them last week. Never used...

I hear that DTV has a new dongle (called a LCC {Local Channel Connector}, about the size of those old BBCs) that are (and will be) compatible with Genies. The talk is having these doongle to get your locals over-the-air to drop the price of your DTV bill plus fee disputes are moot!
