It means that the station currently transmitting on 25 will go off the air and they will become a "guest" on the "host's" post-repack channel and will be treated like a sub-channel as far as your tuner is concerned.

"Channel sharing" is exactly what it says. There will be two stations on one signal, sharing the bandwidth under the terms of their contractual agreement. The guest will pay the host for the right to use an allocated portion of the channel's bandwidth.

It's weird, because WNNE is already broadcasting the exact same content as as WPTZ 5.1 (NBC). In fact, I think WNNE is a translator for WPTZ. Also, WPTZ already has three channels on its signal: NBC (1080i), CW (720p), and MeTV (480i). Could they squeeze one more sub-channel channel into the signal? Even if they could, it wouldn't make any sense to have two subchannels with exactly the same content.

Clarification: (from Wikipedia)
WNNE serves as a full-time satellite of WPTZ (channel 5), the NBC affiliate for Plattsburgh, New York and Burlington, Vermont. WNNE airs the same broadcast schedule as its parent station, but airs some limited advertising specific to the Upper Valley (Hanover NH area) that is added to WPTZ's programming.
