Confirmed via a story this June on the TV industry site TVNewsCheck, though it doesn't say when. I guess Me-TV took a last run with the shows before losing the rights to Antenna TV.

I can get Antenna TV just fine now, so I'm happy with it.

Anyone know how its fed to affiliates? We dont have it here, and if its on C or KU band, I could probably watch it, if its not scrambled.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
It is also available nationwide on free-to-air C-band satellite via AMC-1 in DVB-S format.
I have no idea if that is accurate. Maybe it was at one time, since I don't see it here on the link from Wiki:

Don't know if this is accurate, either.

Our OTA affiliate apparently dumped ME within the last week, and nobody else has picked it up yet. I'd like to watch some of those shows, sounds pretty cool!

Here's an article on the Dallas situation, courtesy of an industry site:

http://www.broadcastingcable.com/art...heir_Me_TV.php

I can't figure out why the owners of KTXD didn't at least keep the full MeTV feed on a subchannel...they do so in other markets.

It sounds like there's strong interest in the market for the channel, so someone will probably pick it up soon.

It's on a sub channel here. Until this I just assumed it was standard.

I hope Brian Joyce's grand vision as an independent bites him in the ass. His attitude sucks.

There are a handful of stations where Me-TV is on the main channel. It's mostly stations that get bought and sold a lot.

In most markets, it's on a subchannel (WOIO 19.2 here, 19.1 is CBS).

The cost of what they're doing will bite him in the posterior. They'll be out of money in less than a year...mark my word!

And, just over a month later, someone has picked up Me-TV in Dallas.

http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/7...affiliate-ktxa

Quote:
Weigel Broadcasting’s classic TV multicast channel Me-TV, Memorable Entertainment Television, has signed CBS-owned independent KTXA Dallas (DMA 5), which will begin broadcasting the diginet on its ch. 21.2 starting Dec. 23. The network has been without an affiliate in the market since ending its affiliation with KTXD on Oct. 30.

KTXA 21.2 will carry the complete Me-TV program schedule featuring more than 50 different classic television programs every week.
They didn't need to deal with the Grand Local Programming Vision of Brian Joyce after all.

MeTV seems to be moving into the 70s. They have Wonder Woman Starting this Friday. I'll get to see Linda Carter spin again. hehe And they are now showing Land of the Lost. As a Kid I loved both of these shows.

Looking forward to Wonder Woman, the 70's were pretty well represented already Cannon, Hawaii 5 O, Kojak, Streets Of San Francisco etc. Is the reason I call it the channel where big Fords roam freely.

With the windows shot out, etc.

I imagine if "Cannon" were made in the 1990s, Frank Cannon would have to be in a huge pickup or SUV. I don't think they MAKE big Ford sedans now.

Rockford Files Answering Machine Messages (complete season 1)
You need to upgrade your Flash Player
I recorded that on my answering machine way back then.

On another note...
It is amazing that Jim Rockford could get so beat up every episode and still not get the girl or get paid. No wonder he lived in that ratty little trailer.
