I am beginning to think as was mentioned in an earlier post that this is all just a mistake and not an indication of them some day offering different programming on a subchannel.
I noticed a very subtle difference. On the ".1" channel, the logo on the bottom shows "Global HD" while the ".2" channel just shows "Global". I'd guess they are using the subchannel to feed some std def cable headends instead of forcing the headends to downcovert the main channel.
