Damn this is complicated.
The channels are pretty much identical, but because of some FCC quirk they have to show Peachtree in Atlanta and TBS in the rest of the country. There's a similar quirk with the CRTC that results in Peachtree being shown in Canada.

Not sure what the deal is in Canada, but it's kind of funny because during the commercial breaks we get a mix of Atlanta-based commercials and local commercials. So you see a commercial for McDick's offering nickel cheeseburgers or something crazy like thaty, and you don't realize until the end that you'd have to drive a day and a half straight to cash in on that. Bloody annoying.
