Odd piece.

It was unclear what they were writing about. I could not find where they were talking about the old American NTSC channels or the new OTA HD channel space.

I'd find a better article next time.

OTA Thriving in Atlanta
by slick1ru2009 / October 27, 2012 9:20 PM PDT

I've had an OTA for 2 years. I was shocked that over 40 channels showed up back then. Now, its 60. Some are parked, some are religious, some are home shopping network. I did find a gen, MeTV, which has a horror hosted show on Sat. nights which reminds me of my youth. The show is called Svengoolie and they show old Universal horror films. I find it cool, nostalgic, that after decades of cable and satellite viewing I get to watch hosted horror again via antenna. Cool So it seems that OTA is thriving here. I have two TVs set up and re-scan every few months. I have the OTA feed going through my Dish receivers so I can record content too.
