SLC is a decent market, yes. Both PBS stations have 4 and 5
subchannels. Both PBS stations also have radio (audio only) streams and
one TV station has the radio station they own also on a subchannel audio
only.. I didn't include those in the list of video streams either. I
don't think it will be uncommon to see each station sending 2-6 video
streams in the future.. More money for them in advertising...
