Ch 47 tells me they didn't renew their contract to show probably the most popular OLDIES TV CHANNEL.

Lists Dragnet right now, but currently showing Fantasy Island via DirecTV right now.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

KTXD Dallas has not renewed its contract with the vintage programming network Me-TV, becoming what it calls a "true independent station." The London Broadcasting station features a lineup of local shows that includes The Texas Daily, The Broadcast, Lone Star Roads and DFW Sports Beat.

"KTXD will be a true, independent station and can call its own shots on what we air," said KTXD VP/General Manager Brian Joyce. "Our audiences want more. Our advertisers want more. And with an expansion of our original local programs to additional stations throughout Texas, we'll now have the flexibility to give them what they're asking for."

KTXD airs more than five hours of local programming per weekday. Last month, some of KTXD's local programs debuted across a Texas network of London-owned stations, including ones in Waco and Abilene. Syndicated shows include Married With Children, All In the Family and I Dream of Jeannie, which KTXD says are "in higher demand than what Me-TV was providing."

Me-TV did not comment at presstime.

The station will also carry a Dallas Cowboys-Chicago Bears game Dec 9.

"We are excited to watch everything fall into place with our most recent moves to near statewide broadcasting and independence," Joyce said. "We want to thank our great viewers who are loyal and excited about what we're doing, and our advertisers for demanding more from us and helping us grow."

I wish my local NBC would get rid of it. They threw primetime programming over to it last night.
