In hopefully my last message detailing the minutia of the NBC Boston change, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette has changed their daily listings to show WBTS as “8 NBC” instead of 10, and WJAR as “10 NBC” instead of 17. That makes a lot more sense, to use the over-the-air channels, even though people in the Worcester area are watching over-the-air on 60.5, not 8.1.
