In "major" markets, the shopping (and in some parts of the
country, the religious) channels often lease a small part
of the bandwidth of a (usually) local independat broadcaster
and then use "must carry" to force the cable company to
add it to their offerings.  Apparently there are enough people
who are willing to send money to result in a positive return
(and in some cases, it might make the local broadcaster
able to keep the lights on).
