    Interesting, our OTA 2.2 METV is the Western feed but #247 is Eastern.

    In Southern Colorado, my OTA Me TV is not on a full schedule and is not on 6 PM - 9PM , then replay Hogans Heroes at 9PM hour as an example.

    So I am very happy that DISH is able to get us Me TV full schedule. I think I am getting the eastern or central feed. I used to see Me TV Chicago on the big dish many years ago.

    I do not think there is a pacific feed of Me TV ?

    Thank you Dish for METV. As well as the other diginets, GET TV, Buzzr, Grit, Justice TV, Laff. Hopefully we will have more in the future. I sure would love to have Antenna TV & THIS.

    H&I I think is also owned by Weigal, the owner of METV, Movies, etc. I would think Dish could make a deal with H&I if they have METV now. If a channel is popular enough and if Dish can make a deal, we have a better chance in getting the channel. I really love having all of these diginets.

    METV does not have a HD channel on Dish...just SD...which seems reasonable since the programs they carry were never recorded in HD.

    MeTV is not available in all area on DISH go to metv.com where to watch page and put in your zip code to see if it available to you on DISH if you already have a Local MeTV channel on DISH then you won't get the 247 metv channel.

    Is it in a specific package (short of AT250 ) ?

    Read his post carefully, he didn't say not available at all, he said not available in all areas. According to the lookup tool on MeTV's site, it's not available in NYC, LA, Philly, Atlanta, Seattle, or other markets where MeTV is on a primary (x-1) station instead of a subchannel. Which explains why it's listed as "Hidden - AVAILABLE" on James's report:

    I have the flex pack and am not getting it, and I`m not in a market where METV is a primary channel.

    According to Dish's site it's not in any of the Flex packs, it's only in AT120 and higher.

    Interesting, I have it OTA on a translator as well as on 247. One is PT and the 247 ET.

    I have METV on an OTA subchannel in my market (South Bend, IN). Right now Cannon is on in wide screen. DISH's channel is cropped to 4:3. I assume the 16:9 feed is zoomed in to fit the width and lose a little off the top and bottom. Not noticeable except when watching side by side (or 16x9 framed commercials).

    I get both METV on channel 23-1 OTA (and 26-3 subchannel) as well as 247. 247 is actually a couple of seconds ahead of the satellite version. I do have some different commercials on 247 and OTA.
