Exactly. NBC has most of the cable operators on board, Charter in Worcester
is the only one to be balking as they carry WJAR anyways.

Will be curious to see how the CRTC deals with this as WHDH is the primary
NBC station on cable in Atlantic Canada.

Does anybody here think that Ansin might have put 7 into the auction as
well along with 56?
