MeTV & other classic stations

Message 1 of 6
(3,117 Views)

When I was in FL, I fell in love with MeTV, I can't seem to find it anywhere on the Verizon lineup.  Is it on Verizon anywhere?  All of the classic type channels like Boom and BBC are additional charges.  I am new to Verizon as my previous provider increased our charges dramatically, but I am disenchanted already.  After contract is up, not sure we'll be staying.  😞

Channels like MeTV are sub carriers of a broadcast network.
So first look to see if there is a broadcast network in your area that covers it.

If not, then FIOS won't cover it either.

For example, here in the DFW area we have MeTV on channel 464.

I'm also in the Hampton roads area, and use an indoor antenna to pick up METV.   I get 18 channels total, plus a afew that that don't interest me.   Reception is good most of the time.   Not FiOS quality, but better than COX cable.

In my area,  Hampton Roads Virginia,  MeTV is broadcast by a local station.  But it is not carried by Verizon.  Why the different policies for different viewing areas is beyond me.  But the differences do exist.
