I have heard that. During the Gulf War, Brookline cable moved CNN to
a lower channel on the basis that it was easier to access there. I
was on the town's Cable Monitoring Committee at the time, and I heard
that the lower channels were more popular.

A few years ago, a friend of mine who was a school teacher and had the
summers off used to work as a house watcher for owners who went away.
One of those houses was in Medway or Medfield (I always get them
confused) and he invited some of us over to use the tennis courts
(with the owner's ok).  Later in the day, if some of us wanted
to catch the news on TV, I learned that the town's Cable TV supplier
placed local over-the-air stations at completely different channel
assignments.  I suppose if I lived there, I'd get used to it...
I automatically think og WGBX-TV as being on channel 16 and not 44..
but I found it briefly disconcerting to find channels 2 or 4 or 5 
out among the double-digit assignments.  I never really
found out what was on 2,4,5  etc or why they did this.
