Mary and I don’t watch a lot of TV, and when we do it’s usually MeTV. Or at least it was, until Monday, when I turned on channel 2.2 and found Escape, a true-crime channel that’s already broadcast by another Atlanta station.
Now, they had “special announcements” all last week, explaining that the station would be moving on DirecTV, Comcast, and another cable provider, but not a word about over-the-air. Their new affiliate is located in Toccoa, Georgia, near the South Carolina border, ninety miles away from Atlanta and effectively out of range. Which means, at least for the time being, MeTV is off the air for us. And that sucks.
To paraphrase a famous ad campaign, I WANT MY METV!
One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word from MTV, for those of you who didn’t get the reference.
