Directv has removed ch 25 WUNK-TV(pbs) from the 72.5 sat, WUNK is UNC TV a state wide pbs station and is carried on about 10 different transmitters across NC, WUNK was the Greenville Washington New Bern NC channel, they are now using WUNC-TV from Raliegh NC and it is on the main 101w sat.

We now get NBC, CBS, ABC, UPN, AND FOX FROM 72.5, and WB and PBS off 101w.

Is that the same PBS they just took off the 72.5 and moved to the 101?
