Actually, Cliff, the opposite is the likely course.  What's missing in your
analysis is that broadcasters, once they turn off analog, get "renewal
expectancy."  Before, renewals under the law, was a hit or miss (admittedly,
very few stations have ever had their renewal application denied.)

Renewal expectancy makes it harder to deny a renewal.  The content offered
by this "umbilical" could change, though.

It is ALSO likely that they will get significantly increased localism requirements.

I'm sure that will help the bottom line.
