I doubt they care about over-the-air reception.  This LPTV gives them
one useful thing: a licensed broadcast transmitter at a site which
cable companies already have antennas pointed.  They can then tell
cableco to carry the LPTV instead of the main channel 3 signal,
without running afoul of regulations that would otherwise prohibit
them from feeding different programming to cablecos than they
broadcast over the air.
