I like some of the diginets that the subchannels carry, but I wonder how much money they make for the stations. From the kind of ads that the subchannels carry, I can't imagine it's much.

Of course it is a secret, but several of the popular substations in Charlotte show local adverts. WBTV also preempts Bounce 2 hours/day to provide local news with Black anchors. There are local ads on there too.

THIS did show local adverts when it was on WBTV.

If they score the sub-channel on the local cable system then they get carriage fees. This is my theory on why THIS keeps getting denied like an illegitimate child. TWC in Charlotte won't carry it. This is the 2nd time it's been dropped in CLT. It's now on a station in Hickory which chooses to show it in a distorted format AND which has very little OTA coverage in the DMA compared to WJZY.

As far as I know, DISH and DTV for the most part, will not carry the local subchannels on their systems, so no carriage fees there. They do, somewhat provide guide data for them if you hook up an antenna to their receivers. Though I'm not sure, I don't think Uverse does either. (for the handful that actually have it)
