FYI:  Here in the USA/FCC's Laboratory Division, back in the 1940's, analog 
FM television was tested along with AM/VSB with both using 6 MHz 
channels.  FM worked quite well.  Indeed, to my eye reviewing the 
photographs from receivers of the day, FM worked better than AM/VSB.

I'm still not sure why AM/VSB was chosen.  Curious.

Anyway, it's a tidbit from history.  Hope you find it interesting.
