    Orby TV

    https://www.satelliteguys.us/xen/threads/anyone-know-whats-up-with-orby.392660/ All kinds of interesting info, even the boxes are on sale at Best buy with other sellers trying to liquidate them. I wonder if there will be a firmware update or a way to use the DVR/STB as some OTA box.

    Orby TV

    https://www.lightreading.com/cablevideo/somethings-up-at-orby-tv-/a/d-id/767535 And just like that, Orby TV is going out of business. That did not take long. I guess it ain't cheap leasing satellite bandwidth.

    Insignia 43" Full HD LED TV only $129.99

    43" version requires a 400mm vesa mount, so keep that into consideration when buying this set. Not a bad set if you want to have something for a spare room, cheap large monitor, garage, etc.

    No Impact in San Diego?

    I have a feeling that ATSC 3.0 will ultimately flop due to the changing media landscape. Too many ATSC 1.0 devices out there and the FCC is sort of letting hardware manufacturers and stations do this on their own. Unless the FCC does another transition like the NTSC (analog) to ATSC 1.0...
