I suspect OTA long ago ceased to be conventional. I doubt that it ever 
will be again. Just look at Khalid's recent gyrations over 
location/elevation. The majority aren't interested in so much work / 
non-turnkey solutions. In this age of hundreds of channels, which will 
never all be deliverable via OTA, OTA will remain an inconsequential bit 
player.

Not odd, normal - Wired. The point is the shift between (wired, [and 
satellite?]) models of vendor delivery. Full stop.

People can rail against this, but all they're doing is marginalizing 
themselves.
