Some people think you need a cable or satellite hookup to get MeTV, but all that's required is a digital antenna. Sometimes you have to explain that to some people who mistakenly believe that the channel is part of a digital cable TV package from their local provider or something you need Dish Network to pick up.
And MeTV isn't the only retro channel on the air. There's also "RTV"(Retro Television) which airs programs such as Roger Moore's THE SAINT and Bill Cosby's very first sitcom from the beginning of the '70s. MeTV is a considerably superior channel, but both have good shows to offer.
