    I was in an audience at a comic convention (not Comic Con) years ago when they showed a Superman episode. I got chills when the whole audience, including me, started reciting the opening together.

    Happy Batman Day! 75 years old today. I've known him for 55 years. (Saw my first Batman book at age 7) I rode an elevator with Adam West at another convention. Never could see him as Batman though.

    I love ME TV but I wish I also had a RetroTV affiliate that I could watch, they're showing Doctor Who Classic episodes beginning August 4th. http://www.myretrotv.com/

    We have Retro TV here, but it's on two very weak analog channels. It used to be on analog basic cable, but you now have to get an adapter box for the non-major network local channels here.

    Here and in other markets, Retro TV lost the battle and the war to Me/Antenna.

    I've continued to watch 'The Love Boat' on MeTV. They started out with each episode, in sequence, then it's kind of gotten a bit twisted up. I have this feeling they are going to quit it, like they did with 'That Girl', before getting through the entire series.

    Since somewhere in the middle of season two, IIRC, they started skipping episodes and airing them out of sequence. *sigh* If you are going to make the commitment, how about showing the series in its entirety and in sequence? Too much to ask?

    One of the best shows ever. Loved those guys (was never really a Hot Lips fan).

    I wish Directv would get locked in with this channel so I can DVR some classic shows!

    sweet home, al
    you could be waiting a while, it's broadcast on a digital subchannel by one of the local stations in our market that dtv won't carry.

    have you searched your zip code on metv to see if it's broadcasting in your town? it could be available to you ota.

    Retro TV is on a digital OTA channel here but it's a weak one as well.
    I can't get it reliably with my current set up.

    Solved. Ordered the OTA adapter for the Hopper from Amazon.

    Already is, that's why I started the thread. ;):)

    What's weird is DTV carries a couple of craptastic sub channels already that I doubt anyone watches. Mainly from some nearly college town and it's old art/history junk that's in SD. Looks horrible.

    DirecTV doesn't generally carry local diginet subchannels.

    DirecTV does not carry subchannels as a rule, unless it's a Big Four network affiliate (a la Fox in Youngstown).

    Here's your local list:

    http://www.directv.com/city/tulsa-ok/

    Here's the channel you're probably complaining about:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KRSU-TV

    It's a full power station, so it gets on DirecTV. Your MeTV affiliate is a subchannel of the Fox affiliate there, so it doesn't get on.

    I like many of the additions, though Cleveland will run into an extra episode of something because someone has the rights to "Cheers" here (the CW affiliate runs it once a week early Sunday morning).

    Last time "Cheers" ran, they subbed an extra "Dick Van Dyke Show" because it was next to "Cheers" in the lineup. No idea what they'll do now.

    Love "CHiPs" and "Superman". Lukewarm about "Black Sheep Squadron", though I actually talked to its lead one Saturday morning in Sacramento...

    They said there would be news about Dragnet, I never heard anything, hopefully they will add the B/W episodes to lineup.

    Well her it is. Superman of course will be joining Batman and Wonder Woman on Saturday. There is one surprise on Sunday will be getting a visit from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. In some markets that have right issues Andy Griffith will be replaced with Mayberry R.F.D. I hate they took off my one favorite The Honeymooners.

    Very displeased that "Mission: Impossible" is getting demoted from M-F to Sun only. I've slogged through the Jim Phelps-less season 1 episodes (well, tonight is that last one that starts "Good morning, Mr. Briggs"), and I want to get to the season 6 episode with William Shatner as the guest. Now it's going to take 2+ years to get there....

    They made a big deal about getting the episodes of Cannon that haven't been in syndication before a while back never showed any, hopefully will when it comes back. Just had started watching Kojak when they bumped it down to once a week, now gone.

    It looks like AntennaTv is stepping up their game a bit. In 2015 their going to be adding An Alien (R.I.P Robin Williams),a robot, a butler, a legendary kid doctor, Burt Reynolds, Newhart and their going to be moving on up to the eastside.
