No, that's not what I was trying to get across. I'm saying that we have
seen several reports of stations dropping their OTA transmission, or
perhaps their NTSC transmission, and then reporting a drop of 30 percent
of their viewership. Seems to me that cable and DBS households are using
OTA as well, many times. (And of course DBS users often go OTA for HDTV
from the major networks.)
