The thing I can't figure out is why they didn't call it channel 8.5 instead of 60.5. It would be less confusing to people in the core part of the market, who can receive 8 but not 60, and it would place NBC next to the other network stations on most people's TVs. 

It makes me think this is a hasty and temporary move, and Comcast expects to change their entire OTA situation soon, perhaps after the spectrum auction.
