I have ME TV on now in St. Louis. I never watched it as an OTA channel, and probably will not watch it now that it is on U-Verse. However, if I did, at least I could use the Guide to see what is on.

 

Perhaps this is an indication that U-Verse may start adding subchannels. The subchannel that I want to see added is  that all weather subchannel that goes local when there is bad weather.

It appears that the statement that it is in 200 is incorrect. The channel listing shows it in 300. I have 200 & see not subscribed, as well.

No METV in Indianapolis -  I'm sure that they have to negotiate with the main channel's owner in each city.

Apparently METV is a big deal. I saw an AT&T ad announcing METV is available on Uverse earlier today.  It is interesting that it isn't available in all of the packages.

All I've seen are reruns of some great classic shows such as M*A*S*H and several other shows from the 60's 70's and 80's.

I was on the U-verse Facebook Page and one of the AT&T reps said they will be adding MeTV to all locations in the near future.  I'm glad to hear this, they have some good programming.  I noticed that in Atlanta they have carried some of the local High School football games.

I have not seen it on U-verse in Columbus / Central Ohio yet.

I was curious to those who now have channel 136 - is it a national feed or the local ME TV station?  In my area, the OTA channel 4.2 ME TV carries a local news re-broadcast at 7:00 P.M. weeknights.

Will METV be running more than reruns in the future?

Considering that ME-TV is all about the classic television programming and they have over 50 series in their library with long term licensing agreements, I'd say no.

On the other hand, that's how both Nick at Nite, then TVLand started, and now they both have originial programming, so new show in the distant future might not be out of the question.

This should be on U-200.  You've taken channels away from us without giving us others back and more than 50 channels are music/non-tv Channels.  If I wanted 53 music channels, there are certainly MUCH cheaper ways than U-Verse!

Was watching a Lost in Space re-run on it last night.  Used to love that show, too bad they only play it one night a week.  Hope this means that Antenna TV & other sub-channels are not far behind.

Great question cbussteeler!  But kind of a buzzkill to find out it's the National feed as that shores up that AT&T's hard stance against subchannels is not changing.  I was hoping that they would do the right thing (by me) and carry the DTV subchannels.

 

At any rate, no 136 yet in Indianapolis.

Off topic, I know, but I see according to that lineup that Fox Movie Channel was moved back to the U200.  That's good, I know a lot of people were unhappy when it was moved to U300.

I hope you're wrong.  Channels like METV and AntennaTV are finding success because TVLand ceased to be what it once was.

I was on the U-verse facebook page in November.  There I was told by AT&T "we plan to add MeTV into our lineup in all markets in the near future",  I don't know if they will or will not.  Seems like it should be easy enough to accomplish if they want to do it.  Still, it's not on my U-verse in the metro-Atlanta area.  I just purchased a RCA antenna at Lowes, I can now pick up over-the-air programming, about 30 stations, and MeTV is one of them.  It's great!  I would drop cable/uverse if it were not for the great sports, National Geographic and a few other favorites.  Still, the idea of saving that money every month is tempting.  I did not realize how many great High Def stations I can get with this little antenna :-)

Ah Bill, if it were only that easy.  There is a reason (or two) that it is not yet in all markets.  MONEY and maybe business politics.

 

In Atlanta, Me-TV is carried on WSB 2.2.  WSB is not given the rights to carry Me-TV for free, so they pay good money to Weigel Media to carry it.  Other cable systems that do carry 2.2 have made some financial dealings with WSB to carry it.  NOW here comes U-Verse, telling WSB, we are going to carry the National feed of Me-TV.  And, I am willing to bet that WSB is saying, "not so fast, hombre, I want MY cut for you circumventing us."  That has to be why Me-TV is not in every market, including mine (Indianapolis).

 

WSB has something else in their corner.  They are owned by Cox.  :smileywink: :smileysurprised:

I just noticed that METV, Ch. 136, is no longer part of the AT&T U-Verse service we get (U-200.) What happened? I enjoyed it.
