DirecTV has added PBS affiliated UNC-HD (xx-1) and subchannel UNC-KD (xx-2) to LILs. The main channel is doing 1080i while the sub channel is 720p... I'm in the Virginia Beach-Norfolk Market...

OTA 4-1 appears to be coming in as just 4 on DirecTV. With PBS kids coming in at 4-2 (same as OTA).

My daughter is happily watching Martha Speaks right now.

What channel would they be on when/if they get turned on in Charlotte? Sorry, I'm fairly new to this area, I don't think I've watched PBS since I moved here.
