Re: OTA is dead unless someone fixes it
@mhhf1ve:

Wow, that's a news to me. I am not an iPhone user and hence not aware. I am really surprised to hear that newer iPhone has no FM receiver anymore. I wonder what could be the strategy behind that.

@DHagar:

That is absolutely the point and that to me is concerning. We can't just be working at extreme end points, there has to be some balance which is sustainable.

Re: OTA is dead unless someone fixes it
Curiously, FM radio seems to be a new issue that the FCC is trying to guilt trip Apple into activating on iPhones. I'm not sure why iPhones don't have FM radios activated, but it's interesting that the newest models have no FM receivers. Is Apple trying to kill FM radio like 3.5mm wired headphones?

@ms.akkineni, thanks!  Excellent - we are either moving forward or backward - there is no island inbetween any more.

That is absolutely true. I would agree with you that FM would and must remain analog for obvious reason you stated.

@DHagar:

Correct, the moment we are thinking of excuse means we are going backwards. In recent times, what matters the most is how hungry you are to grasp, learn and execute. Those are basic driving factors for one's individual growth, organizational as well as contributing in whatever denomination to the market segments.

Re: OTA is dead unless someone fixes it
I think FM radio will remain analog because it is often used as an emergency broadcast network... and it would actually be unsafe to switch it to digital broadcasting during emergencies.

@ms.akkineni, true!  We need to build our choices and not find an excuse to reduce them.

Feeling nostalgic reading your comments. I could recall my childhood memories back in India , where someone use to get on top of the roof and keep adjusting antenna while we test chnannels and transmission quality till we setlle in for something.

@DHagar:

Glad to know we all align well on FM.

I also would hope that satelite braodcasting would continue to keep markets healthy and customers happy.
