Since Charlotte is clearly the largest metro area anywhere in the Carolinas, I cannot make a direct comparison to my local market in terms of trying to justify why certain channel are offered (or not).......
But just pointing out the differences between the Charlotte market versus the Greensboro/W-S/H-P market, the following networks come to mind:
The Charlotte market has its own local PBS network, MeTV, Bounce TV, Live Well Network, RTV, TuffTV, My Family TV, and independent WAXN..... whereas none of these particular networks are offered in the Greensboro/W-S/H-P market.
The Greensboro/W-S market has ION TV, This TV, TheCoolTV, AMGTV, Estrella TV whereas none of these particular networks are offered in the Charlotte market.
From what I can recall (as I type this), the rest of the channels are essentially duplication of each other, to include all the major networks, as well as Antenna TV, and the County Network (offered in both markets).
I think MeTV in Charlotte is great. It is not offered in the Greensboro market and is one of my favorite subchannels. Also, the Greensboro market does not offer RTV, TuffTV, and My Family TV.
But Charlotte has some missing networks that we get here. They include This TV (since WBTV dropped it). Also, ION TV is not offered in Charlotte (has some good movies on the weekends).
At any rate, I am happy to just hold onto the over the air stations that we've got
