Weigel Broadcasting And DirecTV Expand MeTV Distribution

Starting the classic television network is now available in high-definition across the U.S. with new DirecTV and DirecTV Stream agreements.

Weigel Broadcasting Co. and DirecTV today announced Weigel’s flagship network, MeTV, is now available nationwide on DirecTV and DirecTV Stream, bringing the classic TV destination to millions of additional service customers’ homes. Beginning today, MeTV is available in HD on both DirecTV and DirecTV Stream (ch. 77) for customers with the Choice and above packages.

“MeTV is ‘Memorable Entertainment Television,’ making it a uniquely valuable addition to the DirecTV channel lineup nationwide,” said Neal Sabin, vice-chairman of Weigel Broadcasting. “We couldn’t be happier to seal this deal which allows us to add MeTV beyond the existing markets and deliver some of the most cherished and timeless television ever made to DirecTV subscribers coast-to-coast.”

“This agreement provides Weigel additional reach to grow its viewership and sponsors, while furthering DirecTV’s national and local programming interests,” said Linda Burakoff, DirecTV senior vice president of content and programming. “We continue to work creatively, and respectfully, with Weigel and other broadcasters to identify our mutual priorities, and then develop them together to expand our customers, sponsors and future prospects.”
