WBIN, as 50-1, like other shared channels, still has a separate FCC broadcast license, which means it has the right to insist on must-carry on all cable and satellite systems covering the market. That is a big advantage over being just another subchannel, which would only be carried if the primary channel (WUTF) is able to negotiate sufficient retransmission consent rights to include subchannels. The license could also be sold separately in the future.

Not surprising. Those are probably the only stations that would cause heavy viewer complaints if dropped in a price war.

But WBIN still gives WUTF two must-carry channels. They can leave it all or mostly AntennaTV, program something else - increasing the bandwidth if needed, sell it, or LMA it.
