I'd be surprised if that was it. The existence of channels like MeTV is possible because the syndication rights for most of these shows is extremely low or even non existent, so these networks can broadcast them, and make money on commercials and lots of Infomercials. That's why you are seeing a bunch of these channels pop up, mostly on sub channels. I wish DirecTV would carry some of these subchannels. We get MeTV because it's on a regular OTA channel here in NY. But I think Cabelvison carries Antenna TV on a subchannel and a few others (I keep basic cable for those times when I get severe rain fade). I haven't checked in awhile.
