I think at WGBH the feeling was that the issue you mentioned applied to 
streams and not to our regular broadcast.

We have an HD classical station and it streams 24/7. I was at a meeting 
when someone asked why we couldn't have a 24/7 jazz stream. One of the 
things that was said was that if we just had a jazz stream, it would be 
subject to the rules you mentioned above since it was not being 
broadcast simultaneously. I think the feeling is that if we broadcast 
and stream, we can do those things you mentioned. If we were just 
streaming we would have to obey the rules you mentioned. That's the way 
it was explained to me.
