Meanwhile, the FCC has all but assured that OTA TV is headed down the same road as radio.
Which is crap...but it really doesn't matter. With most (if not all) stations streaming their news broadcasts, as long as they can continue to get the adverts needed, why keep OTA transmitters? The more I think about it, getting rid of transmitters would save stations thousands of dollars a year.

Biggest problem them arises in that we STILL have at least 20% of the country without high-speed broadband internet access. I know areas of Northern MI that still rely on dial-up and have crap cell reception.
There are multiple communities in MI that have a McDonald's but don't have broadband internet access AFAIK (Carson City comes to mind)

I know. That's why I said that's where the biggest problem is. I have a few friends up in Cheboygan that literally live half a mile from the end of the Charter line. And the specific area where their houses are have shit for cell reception so tethering is out of the question, thanks to the over abundance of trees.
