    Please explain "sub-channels"

    The local hdtv stations are listed with a normal channel number. For example: WESH-DT NBC Channel 11 WFTV-DT ABC Channel 39 WKMG-DT CBS Channel 58 However, whenever I see someone refer to ABC, they say it is actually channel 39.1. Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but does this...
