Comcast has been working to reduce the number of headends they
inherited from Time-Warner, Cablevision and ATT Broadband. For example
when Belmont finally got cable they were tied in to the Cablevision
headend in Westford instead of Boston.

They have tried to standardize channel numbers in Eastern Mass but
Boston still has a completely different channel grid.

CN8 worked well in New Jersey as they could cover local news
overlooked by NYC and Philly but Comcast wanted to build an east coast
