There is a real opportunity for satellite companies to come in and offer a very bare bones local channels only package for maybe like $10/month and save people this headache.  Of course, some of the very same areas that will have to worry about the digital cliff and aren’t served by cable are ones where satellite cannot offer locals.  Its a headache either way.
