It's on autopilot until the last of their contracts expire, Comcast is not making any new carriage deals for it and even they don't carry it anymore.
 
They only carry it in markets that don't have a local MeTV affiliate, if you live in a market where MeTV is carried on an OTA station they either carry the local affiliate's feed or they don't offer it at all.

I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and MeTV is broadcast locally as a sub-channel.  The U-verse channel (136) that brings us MeTV is not the local sub-channel, though.

As stated earlier, I believe Dish does not have the satellite space to add all of the sub channels in all markets. I think the only way at this time, would be to add the national feed of these channels that run the old TV shows like METV, RTV, THIS, and Antenna TV.But I have no idea how the licensing would go on something that is already used as an OTA sub channel.  But cable does it. But like others, I sure would love to have something like Antenna TV. Their lineup of old shows that no one else runs is amazing, like Burns & Allen, Jack Benny, and so on. No OTA channel we get the translators from has Antenna TV here.

Some sources show a channel 39 for Antenna TV here, but the Tribune station in  Portland (32) has never had the money to offer their station on the Oregon coast. There is no direct way, as the other stations use a pickup point between Portland and the coast. But we do have most Portland stations OTA here on translators. We can only hope 32 will add one in time. They are the WB station and their subs are THIS and Antenna TV.

KRON in San Francisco has AntennTV on a sub channel.

I found out today that KATU-2 Portland has added a second sub channel for Get TV. Their lineup is 2.1 KATU (ABC) 2.2 METV 2.3 Get TV. They are the only channel that has not changed their translator from analog to digital, so we are still waiting on that. They have the CP, but hasn't changed as yet. So at least some new channels will be OTA here.

After seeing DISH Business with back-round music on channel 998, I googled Dish Business Info 998 and got this undated message:

Friends,

To the best of our current knowledge ALL Western Video Market DISH Network broadcasts are going to be carried exclusively on DISH channel 998.  

DISH 998 is located on their HDTV (High Definition) satellite, called 129 for its place in the sky at 129 degrees West. This satellite carries all of DISH’s Hi-Definition programming. In order to watch any programming on Channel 998, you MUST HAVE the proper equipment for viewing that particular satellite.

If you are currently watching Hi-Def programming on DISH, you are probably OK, but you should check by going to Channel 998 to make sure. If you see a slate that says, “DISH Business”, you’ve found it. If the channel guide won’t take you to 998, you don’t have it.

If you are NOT currently signed up for HDTV programming, you will most likely have to upgrade your equipment so your receiver can find the correct satellite. Most DISH dealers will provide the equipment and install the upgrade for FREE….with a commitment to one of DISH’s HD packages.

 

To find out your status….or to locate a DISH dealer for an upgrade…. please give a call to DISH:
(800) 333-3474  

or...find a DISH dealer on the Internet at: www.dish.com

 Again …ALL WVM DISH broadcasts will be on Channel 998. This doesn’t allow much time for an equipment changeover, if it’s required, so you need to get ahold of DISH as soon as you can.

 We apologize for this inconvenience but it will allow WVM sales to maintain a consistent channel over the course of the next few years. If you have any other questions, please send us an email:wvm@wvmcattle.com …or give us a call at: (530) 347-3793.

Thanks for watching and we appreciate your participation in WVM auctions.

Guide still says Rural on channel 232.

With the Rural & Family Net merger around 2012-2013, A lot of Rural schedule was on. Now today I noticed Hee Haw and many other rural scheduled shows were dumped. Family Net now occupies the schedule. Good shows like Fantasy Island, Barney Miller, I Dream of Jeannie, Good Times, and more shows are on. 

 

FYI: Hee Haw still can be seen on RFD TV 231. Now my question is the Rural/ Family Net similar to what happened to FETV/ Cozi TV.?

I'm seeing a "fnHD" logo on a letterboxed black and white "I Dream of Jeannie" at the moment.

Today there is a crawler on 232 saying FCC got 1000's of letters, RFD & Family Net will be basic channels within a few weeks. More details coming soon. The crawler ran once in each half hour.
