Just wanted to note that KFTY is now a ME-TV affiliate with a schedule that made me feel like I fell into a time warp.:grin:


Sigh!

Still no date for Atlanta - Coming soon!

M*A*S*H was one of the best shows, and actually still is one of the best shows that's ever been put on tv imho. Wish I could get a full release of all the episodes remastered for Bluray :P

Me-TV or KFTY needs to turn the volume up. It's very low. Good station though.:)

From Press Democrat:

Santa Rosa television station KFTY TV-50 is being acquired by a Texas broadcasting chain that plans to convert it into an affiliate of the Spanish-language network Azteca America.

Una Vez Mas, a Dallas company that owns TV stations across the southern United States, announced a deal Thursday to purchase KFTY from High Plains Broadcasting of Kaw City, Okla.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

The purchase still must win approval from the Federal Communications Commission. Both sides expect such approval within 90 days.

In April, KFTY announced it had become an affiliate of the fledgling Me-TV Network, which broadcasts reruns targeted at viewers age 35 and older, ranging from sit-coms like “Hogan’s Heroes” and “M*A*S*H” to dramas like “Gunsmoke” and “Big Valley.”

That programming format will remain in place until the sale becomes complete, Doorley said.

Several sources indicate KFTY in Santa Rosa will be showing ME-TV (Memorable Entertainment Television) on the 50.1 channel April 25. Since I don't get any signals here in our canyon, I can't verify it, but it since KFTY is on the satellite Bay Area Locals....


And Clear Channel just sold CH 50 to Azecta.

It's full-time here in Atlanta.

Last year ME-TV was forced to provide an alternate for Cheers here in the Atlanta Area but since the first of the year that no longer appears to be an issue

It is full-time in Los Angeles on KDOC 56-03. The programming appears to be shown as it was originally edited when on network television many years ago. I can't be a hundred percent sure of that, but there are no obvious edits that were made. I recall that some local stations back in the day used to make some pretty egregious edits of syndicated rerun programming to stick in more commercials.

Part time here.

CW in primetime, then a couple of syndicated shows, then ME overnight and some of the day. They toss in some junk like Dr. Drew on weekday afternoons. and rerun a 2 1/2 hour local morning news show that was run earlier on their .1 channel.

Weekends are a mix too.

What I'm finding annoying is that some shows are either on ME, RTV and/or Antenna or switch from one to the other as well as other channels like WGN and Reelz.

I really DON'T need Cheers on ME when it's run so often on other channels. What's next, Friends and Seinfeld?

HD, SchmacHD!! Just be glad you've got a picture at all.

What market are you in? What is your ME station?

ME is responsible for most of the commercial placement and while KDOC may not be stealing a little extra time in each show, all of these shows have been edited and do not show in their original condition.

ME-TV is full time in Cleveland on WOIO 19.2
It`s even in Direct TV`s database so it integrates with my AM21 receiver.

Was telling my kids this morning (while trying to drag them from their beds) about how I use to wake-up on my own when I was 9 at 6am every day just to watch Hogans Heroes and Honeymooners.

There aren't any METV, Antenna in the San Francisco area anymore except for KOFY TV -1, but dish doesn't carry.
