No.  Cable systems are only required to carry LPTVs if there are fewer
than three full-power stations available to them.  See 47
U.S.C. subchapter V-A, available at
<http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/47/ch5.html>.  The ``must carry''
provisions of the Cable Act are at 47 USC 534 for commercial stations,
and sec. 535 for non-commercial stations.
