>>>"Free" broadcast is alive and well - online.
That's NOT free. You have to pay a monthly bill, and if you go over ~250 gigabytes per month (which would be easy to do if internet == television in your home), then you have to pay even more money.
In contrast my broadcast television has NO monthly free and I get all of these channels:
10 (Xena, Hercules, and other 90s classic)
11 (syndicated/independent shows)
SUBchannels (X-2, X-3, X-4, X-5)
This movie channel
Megahertz (world news)
FOX News (local 24 hour news)
Smile of a Child (SOAC)
JCTV (music vids)
So that's what? About 40 channels? And they are all free-of-charge and takeup very little space on the spectrum (about 0.4 gigahertz). I don't see any reason to kill off broadcast, free TV as some companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple want to do.
