Yeah, I'm definitely glad MeTV managed to get those cartoons from WB. This is probably the first time any of those cartoons have run on OTA in decades (not counting public domain cartoons, of course). Too bad I can't get it in my area. None of the Springfield stations carry MeTV, and the two closest stations to me that do carry it (WHCT in Hartford and an Adams, MA-based translator of WNYT in Albany) are not only both low power stations, they're on the exact same channel.That is a significant loss. MeTV has 3 hours of classic kids programming on Saturday morning:
Popeye and Pals (Paramount), Tom and Jerry (MGM), Bugs Bunny (Warner Bros). Incredible stuff, if you don’t mind violence.
Technically speaking, Scripps doesn't actually own 59. They had to sell it to Inyo Broadcast Holdings to comply with FCC regulations, though admittedly, considering how the stations are run, they might as well be Scripps stations.FAVE TV did not last long, MeTV is back on 4.4. Apparently, the owners of MeTV's attempt to use KREG (impossible to receive it in Denver) to serve Denver, via cable, failed miserably. A cushion to Scripps ravaging digital 3, 7, 10 and 59 (not counting the low power stations). Thanks to the FCC, one owner can own as many TV stations as they like.
