I can't get it OTA from where I am, but it definitely sounds interesting, programming-wise. However, I would expect any 4th subchannel that shows sports' picture quality to extremely suck.
Even though all the stations are 480i, these lower-powered stations never seem to have very good, modern encoders.
Just look at WPVN or WWTO for example. Not that there's anything I'd ever want to watch on WWTO, but I do like Korean dramas - unfortunately, that new, MBC subchannel of WPVN that shows them is really, really bad (don't know if Comcast has it yet). Not just the severe macroblocking upon any movement, but the picture often jumps around and flickers all over the place. Even if it's the source, coupled with the extreme bit-starving and old encoders, it's pretty unwatchable a lot of the time.
As far as sports on a subchannel, I can barely even stand to watch Universal Sports.
Anyway, depending on where you are, maybe you can get WOCK's digital, low-VHF station (4) OTA.
