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

Why not just put it on a new 8-3 station?
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.

Will the last subscriber leaving Dish Network please turn off the satellite.

They're not pulling it all. Zap2It's schedule goes to 9/5 now and 8.2 will only be AntennaTV between the hours of 11PM and Noon, meaning only overnights and mornings. The rest of the time is either syndicated shows or MyNetworkTV.

Antenna TV had earlier stated that their service would wrap around My Network TV. But to not air Antenna TV service from noon to 8 pm is a shocker. The viewing public will cry foul, and the local affiliate will gradually yield, IMO.
