re: Millennials don't know tv is free.
It's probably more likely they just don't know it's still an option. Not that they didn't know it was ever an option. And I'd be willing to bet more than a few older people don't know that either.

I see an Hd antenna ad commercial on TV where they try to pretend it's some magical proprietary technology.

re: Millennials don't know tv is free.
Im a millennial and built a bowtie UHF antenna with coat hangers for local digital channels 7 years ago


ETA: stop calling it an HD antenna, it's a UHF antenna and digital broadcasts are all in that spectrum

Agreed. The article is a reach for sure....

Where is the article about Boomers not knowing we can get all the channels for free?

The picture quality via antenna is awesome and better than cable or fiber HD in my experience. The problem is the reception. Channels are either on or off.

In the pre-HD days you could still watch every channel with an antenna, just a little snowy sometimes.

Think they ever had an article titled "Over 51% of the population Have Only Seen Cotton Being Unseeded By The Cotton Gin"?

re: Millennials don't know tv is free.
First of all, many millennials indeed do know this. You think the main generation who "chord cut" don't know about free tv?

Secondly, I find it funny how older people see it as almost a badge of honor to not know current technology that can actually improve your life today, yet they're quick to get on youngsters about not knowing old technology.

Your title is misleading. The article said nothing about the % of millennials that don't know. It says 29% of Americans. You even bolded the statement. I know a lot of people that think you can't use antennae anymore because of the conversion to digital signals.

Bull shite. Digital TV uses old channels 7-13 (VHF-H)and 14-51 (UHF). Each digital channel space can carry up to 5 digital TV channels.

I guess they'd be floored to know that the airwaves are owned by "We, the People," and not corporations. Well, technically...
