Yes there is.  You are not in the Boston or Providence market.  So
long as your cable company and WFSB have agreed on terms of carriage,
your cable company is not allowed to pick up an out-of-market CBS
affiliate without the permission of both WFSB and that out-of-market
station.  (Well, technically, they don't need WFSB's permission unless
their contract says so -- but in that case all network programming
would have to be blacked out or replaced with WFSB's programming

Sorry, Adam, but that's the law.
