The fun part is, WFSB also puts "CBS3 Springfield" on one of its 
subchannels of WFSB-DT, so anyone in the Hartford market who can get 
WFSB-DT can watch the Springfield programming, too. In addition to the 
local Springfield news at 6 and 11, there's a somewhat different roster 
of syndicated programming and - perhaps most critically - a different 
set of priorities for Sunday football (Hartford viewers, for some 
reason, want to see the New York teams...)

But wait, there's more: WFSB-DT includes two more subchannels. 3.3 is a 
non-stop weather channel, and 3.4 is "WFSB Fairfield County," with the 
same programming as the main Hartford service but with local Fairfield 
ad inserts and PSAs. There's some talk of eventually doing local news 
inserts there, too.
