How did you know which direction to point your antenna for each station in 
the first place?  Did you hear it promoted on the station's analog station? 
No, you looked it up somewhere or called the station to ask.   The same 
effort would also tell you what the physical digital channel number is, if 
you needed that information.  I'm saying the majority don't need to know 
that information, or at best only need it one time, so we don't need to 
actively promote the information.
