Most people don't use OTA anymore for TV. They either have cable boxes or have "cut the cord", so getting rid of the tuner to cut costs is a pro for most.

Very few TVs have DP. Also, with HDMI2.0->DP1.2 adapters available now, you don't need DP anymore.

By that logic VGA port should have long gone. But never mind VGA, they still have composite inputs... On 4K monitor.
