    1. TV & movies on demand, including current flicks playing at the theaters, leaves little demand for local channels or cable tv. Channels a la carte and free, beat cable and OTA. Times are changing. News is available online with varying degrees of reality, same as local tv news.

  1. Very few true “locals” left in local TV.
    Using a site like is probably easier, more timely, and a bit less biased. Does not bode well for local TV.
