    I have a ME affiliate here in NY...but it doesnt broadcast all the core programs sometimes I see ads for upcoming shows...I hit the guide...I then have infomercials so does a true ME affiliate even exist?

    Same here with KVME as a holdover from when it was solely a religious and infomercial laden TV station KNLA-CD before aligning with MeTV.

    And they are still that way now OTA. KVME is only available for cable or satellite distributors.

    For 24/7 MeTV programming I have to go OTA with local KDOC-DT sub-channel 56-3.

    Aha! Yeah that makes sense..... it is channel 20 indeed as mentioned above in the Los Angles area, but I didn't realize they had a full broadcast license instead of piggy-backing on someone elses license as a sub station.

    In that case... you probably won't see TNN anytime soon on DirecTV.

    The only OTA sub-channel in my area that DTV carries is one of the PBS Sub-channels.

    Yes, that is true. I watch quite a lot of KVME, but it is really annoying how often they interrupt the programming with that stupid "banner screen" :( showing:

    LACA-WB3-LABC IRD01

    It really irritates me, and I would lilke to contact them to ask them to KNOCK IT OFF, or at least be more careful where they insert it in their video stream, but I can't find an e-mail address to contact them.

    As you can see by my avatar, I am a supporter of MeTV, RTV and AntennaTV. If it has a following, I wish Directv would carry it. We have none of these subchannels, in our DMA, and have to go over the air, long distance, if we want to see it. I've spoken to my local affiliates, although interested, they have not moved to do anything about it.

    My hope is that all bit-leeching subchannels disappear. If their content is popular enough, i hope it finds its way to a standalone channel.

    Indeed, that's how we have MeTV here in Austin. There's a LPTV here owned by LIN Broadcasting. Apparently LIN made its carriage (in HD no less) part of the deal where DirecTV (and Time Warner) was able to pick up its other two full power stations in the market.

    I was kind of hoping for TNN, though, since it's openly asking folks to call their "cable company". That to me, means there will be an available cable feed in addition to the .2 feed. Of course, whether DirecTV can be talked into picking it up is another question altogether.

    I don't think it is that unreasonable to carry them in SD since those subchannels aren't available everywhere.

    Palladia ran a marathon of UK 80s Rewind Concerts last weekend with great live acts like ABC, Human League, Go West and my favorite, Billy Ocean. The guy still has an amazing voice, even 25 years after he was a big star.

    That's my round about way of bringing up Ovation HD again. They've been experimenting with more mainstream fair like movies and Antiques Roadshow, but they still show lots of great concerts that would be excellent in HD. So, Ovation HD please.

    Agree. Would also like HLN, FMC, ID or TVLAND in HD. Hopefully, some news or hints will be posted soon.

    TNN isn't going to be on DirecTV, Dish or cable. It will be on another venue. I forgot which.

    We had RTV for six months here, but the station got sold by Clear Channel and the new owner flipped it to Spanish.

    RTV used to be a good channel back in the day until Me-TV and Antenna TV came along and now has most of it's old programming.

    I caught an old Colgate Comedy Hour (with Martin & Lewis) on RTV last week. It's the only program I have watched on RTV in several months.
