I know the discussion is months old but what about a simple weather radio for emergencies left on 24/7 set to your county. Solves the cellar and OTA problem.

Actually, I think the main reason DirecTV was toying with the idea of getting as many folks as possible onto OTA was to reduce payments to broadcasters.


But you're right about one thing...we ALL need weather radios, I don't care WHAT your TV provider is!  :righton:
