I don't have the stats to say anything so bold. But I do think that if they 
needed antenna rotors for NTSC, chances are very good they would need less 
or no antenna aiming with the new gen ATSC receivers, yes. And that if they 
needed an outdoor antenna for decent NTSC reception, chances are a good 
number of those can get by with an indoor antenna now.

Even my STBs get better reception from multiple directions than I got with 
NTSC, and they aren't even a letest gen design.

I think if people get equivalent or better reception of ATSC than they got 
with NTSC, they won't complain. If there's anything to conclude about the 
lack of fanfare, I'd say that's it.
