OTA isn't much better, but then again if it weren't for advertising I might not have a free signal.Ill just go ahead and tell you. There are 600 channels and not a darn thing on to watch. I sit here and timed several shows and you end up watching 15min of commercial to 15min of the show. Dont believe me? Get your stopwatch out. It used to be commercial free when it came out years ago.
