If you get MeTV on DTV, could you tell me what Channel?
DIRECTV doesn't offer MeTV as a national feed. If you don't see MeTV amongst your local channels (or if you don't have a local MeTV channel), DIRECTV isn't offering MeTV to you at this time.

Which brings up a question. Sinclair (illegal owner of the market’s Fox and ABC stations) moved Fox from its own channel (11) to 8.2. I am told they did this in lots of places where they own an illegal duopoly. Fine, no body is ever going to enforce that law. But why wouldn’t Sinclair demand must carry for what it put on 11.1, which is Decades?
Changing from consent to carry to must carry is not a trivial thing. There is a station in my market that gave up their Fox affiliation and was immediately dropped by Dish and DIRECTV. Their new format has not been picked up by either satellite carrier. The Fox affiliation moved to a dot two channel and it is carried by both satellite carriers.

  • If Sinclair demands money, must carry status is forfeit.
  • If Sinclair doesn't demand must carry, they won't get it.
