I didn't know exactly where to post this, so I decided on this area.

My wife has told me more than once that she has heard that there are certain parties (for lack of a better word) lobbying in Washington to discontinue free over the air broadcast of television signals. I do remember seeing a spot on TV about it a while back but haven't have not heard anything about it for a long time. I am wondering if anyone else has seen or heard about this. I do know that when a certain kind of govenment rises to power the first thing they do is take over the radio and TV air waves.

I think it is more of the government reclaiming spectrum and asking tv stations to relocate their channels so the government can sell more spectrum to cell companies

While being subscribed to Dishes Everything Pak, I still used OTA as it provides the best picture available for those channels. One of the biggest problems in this country are surveyors who think they know what the American people are all about.

I probably wasn't paying attention.
