Must Carry

Makes me wonder...

What are the must-carry rules for .2 and .3 TV signals. Comcast in SE NH carries 5.2, 7.2 9.2, 11.2, 56.2, 50.2, 50.3, 60.2, but so far no 62.2. I would think COL Lawrence would therefore require it's carried. Comcast even carries WFXZ-CA 24, which has an over the air reach of...what???

OH...and unless it's because 21 Concord NH has no .2,.3,.4 like 68 Boston, why aren't those channels carried as well?

(I use PSIP #s instead of 20.2, 42.2, 41.2, 35.2, 35.3, 34.2 etc...

No, Comcast actually carried US after it was withdrawn from broadcast stations, as a non-broadcast service, for some months before dropping it. > Now, since Comcast owns NBC-Universal, I can't imagine why they > dropped one of their own channels. US is not majority-owned by Comcast. It may be that they are looking to get out of this partnership and have taken it off their systems as a way to help it fail. -GAWollman
