In my household we have both off-air DTV and low cost cable service. What we pay for cable is a pittance considering what we are getting and it does not require a converter on our analog sets. We have two DTVs which we use to view hi-def programs using a so-called digital UHF antenna (yes, of course it's an ordinary UHF antenna). In short, we are quite pleased with what's happening in 21st century TV. What a transition it has been remembering TV back in the Stone Age when my father first bought that B/W steam-powered RCA 10-incher.
