    KAZA-TV is the Los Angeles affiliate of MeTV. The are owned and operated by the network's owner (Weigel). The call letters refer to their previous affiliation with Azteca America.

    A simple call letter swap would fix that.
    KAZA(channel 54)to channel 57
    KVME(channel 20)to channel 54
    KJLA(channel 57)to channel 20

    FYI for anyone interested. My post from 2018, I had directv and USsb from the beginning. I also wanted oldies and asked direct for 10 years. I now get all the channels the OP mentioned and many more. Here’s what I did:

    Note that you can get all the OTA channels without the DVR functionality, just leave the computer out. Live OTA is still streamed anywhere in the house.

    I did a lot of research how to record OTA, we decided to get it all over an antenna and and our own DVR. We will never use anything else, we love it, and really inexpensive.

    I replaced my DirecTV OTA locals with the new SiliconDust Quadro 4 tuner, an iMac running Channels DVR (wakes automatically to record when needed), appletv, and Channels app on appletv and iPads. Now we get:
    * 8 times more sub-channels and TV shows we use
    * Perfect recordings
    * Instant remote response speed for back, forward, scroll through show!!
    * Automatic commercial skipping support!!!
    * Easier to use since we can check, set and watch on the iPads, and more
    * The tuner is located at the router in the closet so no equipment at the TV
    * Play shows on all TVs in the house since they all have appletvs we use for HBO, etc
    * Since we are grandfathered in, we turned off DirecTV locals to save monthly fee
    * The channels app has great support and takes feedback.
    The only major thing missing is cast and crew.

    Not to mention you can slide in your DirecTV login on Channels DVR to add a number of channels which support Channels Anywhere. I've done that myself to basically add an virtual DirecTV box to my bathroom and have my most wanted channels in there without the need to rent another box. Plus that also adds some nice bonus channels to Channels DVR like some of the OTA channels available via streaming (ie: Comet) along with some other channels (ie: Al Jazeera English).

    Or you can simply connect you cable router to your tv and search cable channels. You get all the talk channels

    That would vary depending on city and system.

    Being a DTV sub, Locast is the only way I receive these channels.

    I wish that were the case here in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Locast hasn't arrived here yet. That would be a good solution. OTA to unstable to use at my location.

    DIRECTV should make subscribing to locals optional, saving around $12 a month. We could save money that way and subscribe to Locast instead for $5 a month and get a LOT more channels.. Why should we have to pay for both?
