Something to watch out for...

One option for Channel 50 is the MeTV format which is similar to TV
Land that is offered by WCIU-TV in Chicago. WCIU transmits it on LP
channel 23 and also on a sub-channel on 26-DT. WCIU has been very
creative in using all their sub-channels.

50 with their digital transmitter is no longer plauged with the washed
out look of their old analog transmitter which gave them the look of
local access.

Ansin holds all the cards here. He would demand a steep price as he
has never forgotten how NBC put the screws to him with WSVN.
