And also get HDTV and SDTV in addition, and without even that $15/mo

Except that "the Internet" won't provide them ubiquitous ccverage. Only
in hot spots.

Also, of course, the 384 Kb/s was an example that makes sense for tiny
screens, and uses up very little of the 19.39 Mb/s, AND is the most
robust mode. You can also opt for less robust modes, more b/s per M/H
channel, or just take up more of the 19.39 Mb/s.

That was just an example that gives what I consider to be a very good
M/H offering (18 channels) at more than adequate video quality for 1.5"
screens, and with minimal impact on everything now offered OTA.
