Now that analog TV is dead and everything is a compressed multiplexed
bit stream, I don't see why they can't crank up the compression a bit
more during overtime and actually broadcast both simultaneously at
lower bitrates.  Just instantiate another plex and use EIT to mark
everything clearly.  (Yes, I know I'm glossing over *lots* of details,
but the fundamental idea is basically sound.)
