FOTA TV exists.


No need.

For all intent and purposes, it DOES NOT exist in the mind of MOST Americans.

They have moved on to another world of TV, with greatly expanded choice and vast archives of programming that is accessible via DVD and the Internet.

Will Free TV come back because of the economy?

Perhaps, but the broadcasters show even less competence than Detroit when it comes to giving consumers what they want.

Both now feast at the government trough, where there is no pressure to be competitive. Why take the risks associated with capitalism, when the government will assume those risks, and appoint a Czar to make certain that these companies only provide what the politicians decide that "We The People" need.

Sorry Bert, but there is little risk that Free OTA TV will make a comeback.
