Starting to sound like channel 56 of Cambridge will become a subchannel of WHDH-TV (IND) channel 7. I wonder if they'll ever do that here in Hartford/New Haven? We have WTNH-TV (ABC) channel 8 of New...

True! Go one town south on I-95 to Mansfield, MA and you enter Bristol County. That's home to Attleborough and Fall River. Not sure about New Bedford, city of license for WLNE-TV (ABC) channel 6.
