Larry Audas, general manager at KTHV-TV, Channel 11, called Outtakes last week to share some excitement buzzing at the CBS affiliate regarding its capabilities for multicasting.

The station had three separate programming signals being aired at the same time due to its digital high-definition and THV2 signals combining with its regular analog Channel 11. As you know, THV2 is a 24-hour local news, weather and sports signal carved out of the station's digital signal that can be found on both Comcast and Conway Corp.'s systems and streaming online at KTHV's Web site.

On April 6, KTHV had its usual "Dr. Phil" on Channel 11 at 3 p.m., while it was broadcasting live coverage of early round play in The Masters golf tournament on its HD channel, all the while running THV2 on the other part of its digital signal.

"It's kind of a sign of things to come," Audas said. "We usually are offering a 'two-for,' but at this moment we have a 'three-for' going on."
