8 LPTV's in Boston?

Since Southern NH is part of the Boston TV Market...

Would the LPTV Ch 13 (WYCN) in Nashua count as one of the 8? 
I believe that they have a LPTV TX in Nashua (at higher power than the
'host' station IIRC) as well as a LPTV TX in Manchester, Chs 33 and 29
respectively, I believe?

I remember seeing a channel 33 on the North Shore about 20 years ago --
strictly over the air, not cable. Its format was music videos by request, I
believe through a $0.99 a minute 1-900 number IIRC. Where was this station,
who owned it, and what happened to it?
