Why would any cable outfit pay to re-transmit a signal already available free over-the-air to people? Especially from a broadcaster that loses audience more and more each day?

CBS and its owner stations have no leverage against cable carriers...they should be working to make sure that the cable providers reach the folks that are on the fringes of over-the-air signals.

Because some customers are not even aware you can watch (for free, with an antenna & converter) the 3 major networks & maybe the CW & PBS.
