Also to increase their range, I would think.  I'm thinking of WMGT 
(now WCDC) on Mt. Greylock, which was channel 74 and then moved to 
19.  On channel 19, they have been able to cover most of Western 
Massachusetts.  The move also made them a player in the Albany area.

I wouldn't think there would be that much of a technical difference 
between channel 55 and channel 40, but perhaps the engineers on this 
forum will tell us otherwise.
