So....how's it transported then?
like this

Apparently it uses 10% of the energy NTSC does for a given coverage area.
So the answer to this question:

There are of course more ways to modulate a digital signal. I think the types that my friend was trying to explain to me were QAM and QPSK.

That was a great explaination of the 8-VSB modulation.
