    Just a heads up;

    For any interested, since it's only in SD anyhow. MeTV programming is now available, for the most part" in the Los Angeles market on SD channel 20 incorrectly labeled as "KBBC." It should be listed under their new call letters as "KVME."

    First noted in the attachment.

    I say available for "the most part," since KVME still reserves a gap for their former mainstay of hispanic religious programming between the local hours of 5:30 AM-8:00 AM.

    Full time MeTV telecasting is available though OTA on local KDOC sub-channel 56-3.

    Will we be getting more of these if each transponder can now handle six? Or this not true of the spot beams?

    The number "6" figure refers to the new HD CONUS beam transponder loading on Ka band at 99 and 103W (don't know if they will do this for HD spotbeams yet).

    Channels such as local KVME (KBBC), the subject of this thread, are SD channels on Ku band at 101, and they are packed at around 10-12 channels per transponder for both CONUS and spotbeams I think.

    I see now that DIRECTV has corrected the call letters to "KVME" in the guide.

    Must have read my initial post on this thread ... :D

    Is that the program lineup dish has for your local MeTV outlet or something? As DIRECTV's guide currently has MeTV programming on local KVME-20 for all hours of the day excepting 5:30AM -8:00AM for religious broadcasting on the weekdays and except for 5:30AM - 9:00AM for both religion and infomercials during the weekends.

    Our MeTV channel in San Francisco is on a sub channel.
