>>and avoided confusion?

Confusing to me for sure.

However, I know where to find NBC programs on my system in my area.

I think that's the only thing that matters to most people...and it appears 
most people have found it.

The explanation and markieting on where it can be found in different areas 
is complex and noisy, but once your found it, and can return to it on your 
own system, you are set.
