** In the present age of digital broadcasts, 37 is still reserved for radio astronomy for physical transmissions. However, stations' display channels (called "virtual" channels) could be anything from 0 to 999. So technically, 37 could be used as merely a display channel.

Channel 1, for example, which was discontinued in the late 1940s, is used as the display channel for KAXT, a low-powered station in Santa Clara CA, which physically broadcasts on channel 42.

** There were also "paper towns", an entire fictional community that would appear on a larger map. For example, the official state map of Michigan in the late 1970s included the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatosu_and_Goblu fake towns of Beatosu and Goblu]] in [[TheRival Ohio]][[note]]"Beatosu" = "Beat [[SpellMyNameWithAThe (The)]] Ohio State University", "Goblu" = "Go Blue", one of the chants of the University of Micigan[[/note]]. This strategy sometimes backfired when people would move to the area and Defictionalize the paper town.

* ''Series/EarthFinalConflict'' had ''several'' domains bought out and fake websites assembled with background data and character notes. As the show was made during the late '90s, it was one of the first to make extensive use of this, but considering the [[GeneRoddenberry family]] behind it, it's not too shocking.
