6 channels? which ones? I think NBC is carrying the olympics for OTA
broadcast.  My local NBC station has re-sold 4.7Mb/s of their HDTV
bandiwdth to USDTV which leaves about 40Mb/s of data which means 2-3
HDTV res streams or 6-8 low res streams.  That I think would be one good
use of DTV, even at low bandwidth, you could have 6 subchannels under 1
HDTV channel (All the olympics at once)  A good use, plus they could even 
keep their regularly scheduled programming at the same time.  I doubt this 
will happen though, but it would be nice.
