Comcast does carry a lot of the sub-channels (e.g., WGBX), but >are they required to carry all the sub-channels from all the stations in a >given area?  Comcast must be of two minds on how to handle nearly identical over-the-air channels. My latest bill offers the
 information that the two NHPTV channels they offer: channel 11.1 and 11.2 on 11 and 296 will go away shortly. No info on what will replace them
 if anything. Nonetheless, WMUR-TV's channel 9 ota & cable slot will apparently stay put as they have since long before Comcast
 bought the cable provider for the Merrimack Valley. NHPTV will similarly duplicate WGBH-TV almost all the time, but with
 a few variations. It's a puzzlement.
