    Not sure how many folks have access to it. Plus you probably wouldn't appreciate the nostalgia of it if you're under say 40 or so. It's only available via OTA antenna for now but I really dig a lot of the old classic shows they have.

    They show everything from the old Batman series, Bob Newhart, Bewitched, Twilight Zone, Star Trek etc.

    If you like "old school" TV from the 50's,60's,70's, I highly recommend trying to tune it in.

    The community center for seniors that I work with has an OTA antenna (I set it up) and we watch this channel. They switch between this and the Judge shows (Judge Judy, and such). Much better than watching Jerry Springer which is their other fave.

    It's on one of the "UHF" stations here in the NYC area, and DirecTV picked up the station. I watch some old episodes of M*A*S*H on it. not HD, but then again neither was their content!

    That's exactly what I watch on it. My TiVo always grabs a couple of episodes of M*A*S*H each day as suggestions. I like to unwind before bed with an ep or two. Funny that I can quote almost all of them from memory.

    I can quote just about any of them from the Henry Blake years almost word for word. I was ok with the early Potter years, but once Winchester joined, I really only watched out of habit. Never liked the character. So I rarely watch those reruns.

    Every time I make ribs now, my boys call them Adams Ribs :)

    Love the four-shot of Brady Bunch on late Sunday morning (they call it Brady Brunch :)) Especially since it usually means the three-part episodes (e.g. Hawaii trip) are back-to-back.

    We get it in Denver. I've been watching old Perry Mason episodes. "It's incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial" seems to be their favorite line.

    meTV comes from Chicago from WCIU, which was a small independent UHF channel.

    And I can't get it. It's blocked on UVerse. I guess I'm considered too far away.

    I like it too! I've mostly been watching 'That Girl'. They were airing it every morning at 8:00, M-F, in order, and I was loving it. Each afternoon I watched that day's ep and then, shortly into season five, they stopped and put something yucky there. Now they just have it here and there, and not in order so I was forced (ha!) to buy the DVDs so I can watch it all on my own.

    But I kept my SP because I like snagging the episodes here and there. Am working on the DVDs too, when I have time.

    Cox cable in Phoenix has a few of the secondary digital stations in their lineup so I get it through that and not OTA. ThisTV is very similar. It shows Patty Duke, Green Acres etc. but also movies and more recent shows like Sabrina

    Like Azlen already said, it is available on cable, maybe not all cable, but it is carried.
    We just recently got a new channel called MOVIES! which also originated in Chicago

    Never heard of this channel 'til today. Cablevision does carry it, but only in CT. I'm hoping to get it soon since The Honeymooners, The Odd Couple and The Dick Van Dyke Show are on there.

    watched every ep of the mary tyler moore show on metv, and when they got to the last episode, instead of showing it, they started over.

    i looked the series finale up on youtube, but they didn't earn any points from me for leaving off the finale after i stuck with them through all seven seasons.

    I'd watch them if the shows weren't highly edited. I haven't proven that they are, but they almost certainly are. Probably at least 10 minutes are cut out of each episode.. (e.g. original Trek episodes were about 51 minutes IIRC.. Current 'hour' shows are about 42 minutes, and cable stations often put even more commercials than broadcast networks.)

    I wish I could get this channel! Apparently, it's only available on Uverse here in South Florida.

    I only started watching it in April. Because here in St. Louis it started on local the MyNetwork station. Which is a pain to receive since they have such a lousy signal. Then in April luckily they switched to the local CBS station. Mostly been watching it for M*A*S*H and Svengoolie on Saturday night.

    If you can get OTA by other means, it's Ch. 43 (UHF)
