why is it no longer required? how is this content coming over the other ways? if it's internet, who will provide that? Comcast and the infrastructure and their trucks to service it. and what free airways. do you mean local channels? nothing is free, and the provider isn't going to just give it away. Comcast is solid in their position with the acquisition of content through NBC Universal. whatever the market, Comcast will be a player. When you wake up from your dream, throw some cold water in your face.
How will it cost almost nothing? What content are you talking about? You must not know costs to carry good content. Comcast pays providers, such as ESPN, Disney, Discovery, locals, etc., a per subscriber monthly charge. How do you expect to get around that? Go ahead and short, I will thank you later!
