 ME TV in Boston
It appears that RTV is now ME TV. I knew it was available on 9.2 WMUR in NH and now it is on WMFP 62 in Boston, which in my area on Verizon FiOS is 23.

I'm looking forward to Svengoolie airing The Car. I wasn't a big fan of Wolfman Mac and Midnight Monster Hop just plain sucked.

All is good!

MeTv ( Memorable Entertainment Television ) is so much better than RTV, it's not even close, IMO.

I didn't think Wolfman Mac was that bad (compared to MMH), but yeah that MMH was howlingly bad.

Really enjoy Svengoolie's show and his low key humor, plus he has a lot of interesting information about each movie peppered thoughout the show.

Svengoolie started off great and 10 minutes into the movie there was a switchover to an infomercial. Someone pressed the wrong button somewhere.

It appears that the station owners in Boston are limiting the ME-TV broadcasts and continuing with the infomercials. Thanks for nothing.

Ugh, there's nothing worse than infomercials. I hope that whoever came up with the idea, will be damned to eternally watching them.

Yeah, it was a sad day when it was discovered that stations could make more money intentionally showing things that nobody wants to watch instead of trying to gain viewers.

The shows that was I interested in are the ones they aren't airing. Love American Style, Get Smart and Taxi. It is always nice to see these reappear every 5 years or so. I still prefer to watch them on broadcast tv over a dvd collection.

 Re: ME TV in Boston
we caught taxi on metv a couple of weeks ago.
i wonder if they are running different shows in different towns.

it would be a hoot to see love american style.

it has been great seeing newhart and mary tyler moore. those shows were so well written and acted. it's been so long since i've seen them i had forgot how good they really were.

It now appears that Svengoolie will not be airing on ME TV in Boston either. At the risk of being censored I could launch into a post of profanities right now.

This topic is dead to me.

That totally sucks!

CDF Fan, if you can get an antenna powerful enough, maybe you can pull in MeTV out of Providence channel 10.2

Just thought I'd add this here in case anyone's missed it as this might help CDF Fan as well as Col. Manning.
There's a new MeTV station to be added on channel 5.2 WCVB. Right now it's only showing color bars and that steady "off-the-air" tone, so I'll keep checking back.

Thanks Beastball! I did notice that channel 5.2 station while scanning for stations in our new place. I saw that it said MeTV and was hoping that would be the case, but wasn't sure. Hopefully it will be up and running soon--and hopefully it will not have informercials later at night instead of cool MeTV programming like Svengoolie!
