Yes, the "new" TNN is being marketed to broadcasters to be used as a subchannel. Its carriage on cable systems will totally be a negotiation between the broadcaster and the cable company. Note that Brighthouse retransmits local stations fairly intact. Those using QAM tuners will get all the subchannels a broadcaster carries, whether that subchannel has a dedicated cable channel or not. Though, in my experience, a new subchannel generally gets a BHN cable slot not long after its introduced. I would imagine that's in the carriage agreements.
NOW.. let's try to keep this thread on topic. As mentioned, before, it's a BRIGHTHOUSE thread.
