What are commenting upon? I certainly didn't say anything to the contrary, and why wouldn't you expect that there would be more over the air channels than on cable? Last time I checked, I could only get about two dozen channels over the air (analog) and about 70 on cable. I can get about a dozen dtv signals, but only 7 on DIGITAL cable. Of course, I could add digital cable and HDTV and premium channels, and I would get more on cable than over the air: up to 22. For about $100 a month. Versus free over the air. Here's something that might have escaped you: cable shares ether only with cable services. DTV shares ether with everything, including analog. By the way, there will be more DTV over the air channels after the end of analog. Count on it.

That won't pay for 5 months of cable. Nor will you receive but a few of the HD programs with your OTA setup that are carried on cable.
