    I stream YouTube through Roku quite a bit, but I don't have YTTV.

    If I could get something like what GamePass used to be ... the option to watch with my home team's radio call ... I wouldn't be able to get my credit card out fast enough. Unfortunately - GamePass was completely neutered this year. (And the old option with audio was never available in the US ... legally anyway).

    I'm not sure that comparing FM tuners to ATSC 3.0 is a fair comparison because there is no built-in FM antenna on a mobile device. The wired earbuds act as the antenna. With ATSC 3.0 the signal will be coming from the mobile data and the device has built-in reception for that. Local channels are missing from streaming just like they are for cable. Local news and events are not a direct competitor to streaming and local channels would only be available for live streaming, not on-demand like streaming services. Maybe kids wouldn't watch local channels, but adults probably would.
