Well sort of. Some stations decode the MPEG stream they receive from the 
networkto baseband, so they can insert commercials, then re-encode before 
transmission. Other stations have devices that allow them to insert material 
into an encoded stream.

Remember stations have to switch and otherwise manipulate the video they 
receive from their network feed.

Both cases allow for all sorts of problems to happen at the local station
