Hmmm. Well we watch a lot of CBS shows, the San Francisco station is O&O, and we don't have access to OTA. What I did for a week in my ratings thread is comment on whether what we recorded and viewed was available for streaming without a subscription to cable or satellite and it turns out that everything but the HBO and Showtime shows could be viewed from the network sites (or subscriptions to CBS All Access, HULU+, Netflix, or Amazon). In 2015 HBO will have an online subscription and it was intimated that Showtime will be following suit. I have speculated that something was going to push me to switch to streaming. It would be interesting during the dispute to try out the CBS All Access because, as I understand it, it does give you access to live local station programming (see this article). We can with our Amazon tablets or phones or our Surface Pro 2's use Miracast to "project" the programming onto our old 2003 Pany Plasma or our 2013 Samsung TV. I don't know how close I am to shifting to all streaming. Our redwood trees are slowly but surely going to force us from satellite. I really would prefer timely access to AMC and TNT shows, for instance, which now aren't offered through their web sites without a cable/satellite provider subscription. However, current episodes from shows like "Walking Dead" are available for $2.00 per episode at Amazon. Within a year I suspect there will be many networks available through subscription online. After 26 years with Echostar C-band/Dish Network equipment, it would be a difficult change. The irony here is I wouldn't actually be cutting a cord, but using one for TV the first time in a quarter of a century. I say all this because in the end, these disputes are going to align with the rest of the home entertainment shift contributing to what is called "cutting the cord."
