Probably cheaper than acquiring syndication. WVLT wouldn't be the first station to have done this.

Pulling the syndie material from 8.2 probably save WVLT a bundle of cash, unless it's all sent over to 8.1 as fill material. 8.3 may be coming in the future for yet another diginet.

It's is my opinion that any station that nibbles on the incentive auction should immediately forfeit their license, with no pay-out, as it goes against the "In the public interest" of a tv license. Selling out in the auction only benefits the shareholders of the stations at the expense of giving the middle finger to the public. Keep the tv broadcast band for ota television broadcasters. We need a strong FCC to say no to the Wireless lobby.
