In an ideal world I would agree. But the networks and programs I watch are not available to me on demand. If I don't record them and watch them at my convenience I would have to wait for them to come out on DVD, another dying technology.

Duh. Reading comprehension please.

I comprehended just fine. The word 'plan' was unnecessary, because it suggests that you have to sign up for a service.

If only words in our language had more than one meaning! All this confusion could have been avoided!

There wasn't confusion. I knew what you meant. I was just pointing out a tiny error in your wording. You can actually get a OTA channels plan from your local cable company. My intention was to help. Apologies if it seemed otherwise.

Cord-cutters denied by Apple. Again. I'm starting to get really disappointed with how Apple appears to be more and more in the pockets of Comcast and TWC.

Apple needs to get serious about this before they add many more channels ...

Totally agree! I won't know until it's revealed but I believe I understand Job's vision; a genre-centric Genius-like search engine and TV show aggregator. Apple TV employs the same old IOS app paradigm, cram them next to each other willy-nilly. This stale paradigm is why I prefer OS X over IOS. I think IOS and Apple TV both need a reboot.

Not Apple, the cable companies.
