Here in York, ME where a "roof antenna" pull in Channels 6,8, 9, 11, 13, 21
and sometimes Channel 5, when I switch the Zenith 901 DTV tuner, that all
changes to DTV channels and multi-streams for channel 11, 21, and 9, and
that's it.  I will have to spend more time this Spring getting this roof
antenna up higher and hope for the best.  I am tired of expensive cable
monthly bills!

Whereas somebody living 50 miles from Boston (or any city) in a 
ground floor apartment without a working master antenna system is 
pretty much gonna be forced to get cable, even though that person may 
have had marginal reception with rabbit ears before.
