Spectrum. DISH bought a great deal of it and T-Mobile could really benefit. Speculation, then, DISH was planning an OTA service to compliment their sattelite delivered programming. But, thanks to the explosion in smart phones, using the spectrum for wireless would rake in much more profits. So much so, that the FCC will be approaching TV broadcasters to give up some frequencies so more can be turned over to wireless. Starting by getting off the VHF band completely (now pretty much 6 - 13, 2 - 5 went with the digital conversion, as did UHF 52 - 69). Also, any TV channels on 51 - 69, will be forced to find a place in teh 14 - 50 range. So, we could see OTA TV only on UHF 14 - 50, It turns out Channel 51, interferes with wireless starting at what was channel 52, and stations are moving to lower frequencies, this happened in Denver. And even that range may be further reduced. In some cities, with a large number of TV channels, like New York and Los Angeles, some TV stations will just be eliminated or some channels, in HD, will go to SD. So, just when OTA has started to find a niche for cable cutters, the federal government, Congress and the Obama administration, is about to reduce the possible options.
