The issue with OTA is that no one is selling it and those who are selling
HD (all retailers, manufacturers, cable and satellite providers) have
something to gain from people NOT knowing about OTA.
It seems unlikely that OTA has a lobbying force, or one to match that of
cable and satellite so it's unlikely that OTA is going to receive a boost

The people who will be watching OTA HD are the same ones that have
been watching NTSC OTA. Not too many folks are going to drop their
satellite or cable for OTA.
