    Is anyone else watching this marathon of shows Nimoy starred in? I've never watched The Man From UNCLE before, but this is some great stuff. Ditto Columbo.

    I think so too, but in fairness, most people have never heard of it.

    MeTV showed the Amok Time episode of the original Star Trek series last night. What a GREAT episode! Spock in heat, T'Pring was SMOKIN' hot, Kirk gets killed by Spock (sort of), then shows some genuine emotion (for once).

    Nimoy really was quite a good actor. RIP.

    If I could figure out a way to watch live sports, Suns games, ASU games, NFL (Raiders), I'd cancel DirecTV tomorrow.

    I bought a ChannelMaster DVR set-up through Amazon for about $300 and it's already paid for itself, entertainment-wise. Original Star Trek, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, MST3K, Svenghoolie, The Saint, The Avengers (Mrs. Peel AND Cathy Gale!), McHale's Navy, The Addam's Family, Dragnet...it's like I'm a kid again!

    "Me TV". Is this some sort of Facebook generation thing?

    I'm guessing it's how they try to appeal them.

    I would give a left nut for ME-TV or Antenna TV but direct TV does not carry them...

    @floplop, just grab a $40 over-the-air antenna from Costco and join the club!

    It's an over-the-air antenna network. There are a bunch of them out there: MeTV, Antenna TV, COZI, Retro...

    Yeah, digital antenna is all you need. Comes in crystal clear too, in HD.

    It started out as a local station here in Chicago. I've been watching Svengoolie (formerly Son of...) for decades. He used to have a lot more, and better movies.

    No, I'm in Phoenix.

    I'm pretty sure there's OTA coverage in most metro areas almost everywhere in the USA, although I saw some chatter on COZI's website about NYC's affiliate preempting programming with local shows...

    I believe COZI is local to New York. The other two are from here. Surprised they are being broadcast locally in other areas since the channels here are not network. METV is from WCIU, a local uhf.

    Svengoolie is great!

    I got turned on to the whole MeTV and Svengoolie thing driving down to Tucson and banging my old girlfriend at a hotel down there that had a OTA set-up.

    I'm such a dork that I'd hurry up, try to bang her and get done in time to watch Svengoolie or Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea!

    No, it's just the opposite, actually.

    The "ME" is short for "millennials excluded".

    ;) :D
