Anybody watch AntennaTV?

They are a relatively new station that plays mostly older television series and a few movies each day. Owned by the CW network.

All in the Family
Maude
SOAP
Sanford and Sons
Leave it to Beaver
Dennis the Menace
Adam-12
Dragnet
The Monkees
The Patridge Family
Benny Hill
The Three Stooges
Three's Company/The Ropers
WKRP
etc.
and oddly enough as it is a recent show, Til Death just started


and they play all the episdoes, and more than that, they also play the sequel/spinoffs of the shows following the last episode, then start it all over again

Plus have marathons of a show on certain days/times

Burns & Allen & The Jack Benny Show are two that do not have complete sets out on dvd or elsewhere and it's amazing to watch George Burns break the 4th wall in each episode and even have his own spy tv to watch the show we the audience is watching. Very clever and ahead of its time.

When in a carriage dispute this summer they were off the air in the NY/NJ/CT area, it was like going cold turkey.
Sure tvland had some shows, but it wasn't the same.

2. Yes!



I'd never seen Burns & Allen or The Jack Benny Show before, but they crack me up! Jack Benny is just adorable. The episodes with Jimmy Stewart & his wife are hilarious.

MeTv is great, too. Every Sunday there's an episode of Columbo in the early evening. Boris Karloff's Thriller, too!

3. We don't get MeTV, my friend in Brooklyn keeps telling me about it

 

I bought the Thriller box set when he told me it was on, I vaguely remembered it back when originally on.
Always liked Hitchcock but in some ways Thriller is even better.

Burns/Allen & Benny I am really enjoying. They had such great timing. Like Lucy and The Honeymooners.

And hadn't remembered Dennis the Menace with the second Mr. Wilson(Gale Gordon, after Joseph Kearns died suddenly). It's funny in that Dennis wasn't really all that bad like I had remembered him being. Love the way Dennis speaks, the voice he uses.I think they wrote episodes better back then.

And the past week had the last episodes of All in the Family with Gloria/Mike leaving.
Carroll O'Connor was fantastic. He nailed that role perfect.

I have asked Cablevision now three times to add MeTV, maybe one of these days.

Wish one of the stations would run all of the Laugh-In or Smothers Brothers shows.
More things that aren't readily available in complete sets or on net.

4. It's not available. We have MeTV around here....

Here's a link to their Wiki page that list's the shows available to us:

Yep, I like to watch many of the oldies!

5. Thanks for the info.

I never heard of this station before, but would love to get it . We don't have a TV station that is near to us so I sent a request to DISH to add it. We'll see...

Thanks for telling us about it.

6. I just discovered it this month.

I caught an hour of Barney Miller during the Christmas shows.
