Frankly, I find it surprising that a subcarrier channel most people don't receive (since the vast majority of their viewers are not on antenna) "greatly increased their viewership," but I will take her word for it. 

Well the broadcasting of the channel does give them cable carriage for Create, so perhaps she was talking about those ratings?

According to WNED's site, Create is available on Time-Warner/Spectrum

Grit does not currently offer streaming. Here's an article about streaming Cozi: https://thestreamable.com/channels/cozi-tv

You mentioned whether the two small Buffalo channels had the financial ability to offer streaming of their subs. My point was that they don't have the rights to do that as the subs have the rights and if they decide to stream it would be through them directly and not through the Buffalo affiliates.

Had a conversation with a Buffalo station GM a couple of years ago. Most of the subchannels are "renters", asking a local channel to carry them in exchange for a cut of a portion of the ads or the ability to sell so many minutes of local ads.

The subchannels are their own entities and do their own streaming if they want to. MeTV shows can be streamed on demand on their site. Comet does their own streaming etc. It's not an issue for their affiliates.

I have to learn to search the FCC site better. Are WNLO/WIVB still at their temporary height/power?

Will WNYO be getting a signal boost? I've had some trouble with them over the last few months.
