TV Channel 6 on FM Radio (87.75 MHz)
Before the advent of HDTV, it was possible to pick up TV channel 6 on any FM radio.

This was great for driving cross country in the car: I used to carry a list of all the cities that had a channel 6. It was just like having TV in the car. This worked in San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Tucson, Philadelphia, Tulsa, Omaha, Knoxville (in college my roommate and I used to listen to all the NBC shows here, it has since changed affiliations), and many others.

Unlike regular TV stations, low power TV stations ended up having the date that analog stations must switch to HDTV suspended, so you can still do this. In Chicago, MeTV has a radio/TV station which gives its frequency as both 87.75 MHz and channel 6. Los Angeles has the Home Shopping Network.
