    US Sub Channels

    With the digital conversion upon us and the decision by the CRTC to allow digital sub-channels, I thought I would post a list of the digital sub-channels that currently exist in the US. There are quite a few and span many different genres from retro to sports to lifestyle programming. Here is what I came up with:

    Subchannels in Canada won't go anywhere. The CRTC has enforced asinine regulations that require subchannels to provide "unique" programming that won't interfere with existing competitors.

    I have a few more I'd like to add to the list though.
    MHz Worldview - Non-commercial channel featuring multilingual programming.
    qubo - Children's programming from Nelvana and Scholastic
    America One - Featuring sports and general entertainment programs.

    And of course there's the various Spanish and religious networks.
