There is no such option. The only legal way in which WBIN could use a 
channel other than 50 as its major channel number would be if it were 
co-owned with another station and used that station's major channel 
number instead. If, say, WCVB were to buy WBIN, WBIN could use "5.x"

Not exclusively, no, but if you look at where the population is on that 
list, probably 80-85% of WBIN's cable audience sees it on "18," and that 
probably translates to somewhere better than 70% of WBIN's total 
potential audience.
