I want my ME TV!

Message 1 of 5

Comcast XFinity has been carrying ME TV on Channel 249 for several months. ME TV is also available on over-the-air TV (the one that requires a converter box). But Verizon seems unwilling to compete with Comcast, because it is not carrying ME TV. Does Verizon want its subscribers to go back to Comcast?

Verizon has ME TV on FiOS on channels 18/518 (KTXD) here in the DFW area (the HD channel appears to show only the SD programs). Since you do not provide your location nobody has a clue where you are.

It's carried on Comcast 249 in Philly. It's a sub channel of WFMZ in Allentown. While Verizon does carry WFMZ, it does not carry its' sub channels. I, too would like to see this channel added. Great classic TV programming, just like the "Old" TV Land.

 

I can't believe how far VZ is falling behind on channel adds. I know - Quailty is better than quantity.

Channel 19 in VHO7. But I don't know what the big deal is. Seems 50 percent of the content is "Paid Programming" so if that's what floats your boat, yeah, great channel.

I have some good news regarding MeTv.  It is coming to Verizon Fios on Oct 1 2012 in Central NJ in the area that Comcast shows it on Ch 249, which is the NY/Phil market.
