By on Jan, 23 2013 with Comments 3

After the station dumped the Retro TV network for Live Well TV a few months ago, classic TV is coming back to Albritton’s WJLA-TV DC. This is the newest affiliate to join The Me-TV Network, which now has clearance in each of the top 10 television markets. Viewers in the market can also enjoy TV classics on Antenna TV, via WDCW-TV 50. The station will launch Me-TV on March 1 and be seen over-the-air on channel 7.2. WJLA is the second station from this media group to become a Me-TV affiliate.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Me-TV team,” said Bill Lord, General Manager of WJLA. “Me-TV has a great library of all time television hit shows and we are very excited to offer these legendary programs to our audience.”

“Adding Allbritton’s flagship Washington D.C. station to our line-up completes Me-TV’s top ten market clearances in a most prestigious manner. WJLA joins WCIV-Charleston as our second Allbritton market,” said Neal Sabin, President of Content and Networks, Weigel Broadcasting Co.

The Me-TV Network serves 141 affiliates and clears 87% of the country. In addition to being available in all top ten television markets, the network can be found in 28 of the top 30 markets in the U.S.

Me-TV features a wide range of programming which audiences and advertisers find comfortable and engaging. Me-TV’s library includes almost 100 series from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, CBS Television Distribution, NBCUniversal Television as well as many independent series owners and producers. Me-TV’s line-up include some of the most beloved television programs ever produced, including:  M*A*S*H, The Brady Bunch, The Beverly Hillbillies, Perry Mason, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Gunsmoke, I Love Lucy, and Hawaii Five-O series.

Me-TV, memorable entertainment television, launched nationally in December 2010, is owned and operated by Me-TV National Limited Partnership and distributed by MGM Television.

  1. Thanks for adding MeTV. I currently watch Baltimore 11.2, but WJAL is a much better signal received in our area. I can’t wait until you begin broadcasting MeTV.

    Thanks so much for MeTV ! I was a big fan of RTV but this is even better and the remaster/broadcast quality is great ! I really like the Saturday night adventure/sci-fi/fantasy/horror lineup ! I’m also a big fan of ‘Route 66 ‘and ‘ Naked City ‘and look forward to an afternoon/evening slot for those two shows in the future. ‘The Rebel ‘! What a find ! Any chance of running ‘Stoney Burke ‘,’Wide Country’,’ The Everglades’,’Cannonball’,’Whirly Birds’, ‘Science Fiction Theater ‘,’Rescue 8′,’One Step Beyond ‘, The Invaders ‘ ?! The wish list goes on !
