A "how do I cut cable?" thread pops up weekly in a local Facebook group I'm on, and everyone ends up with an antenna. It's really hard to get local news without one, and at least here you need it for Browns and most Ohio State football games. I've been using mine daily to watch the Olympics, used it for the Super Bowl and all the award shows. You know that OTA is digital now right? I get some 30 channels with my rabbit ears. I don't know if actually watching OTA is anywhere near as hours spent watching via Roku et al, but as far as I know an antenna is an important part of the cable-cutting setup.
