MeTv in Alberta?

Could MeTv be added to the line up of channels offered to Telus customers in Alberta? It's a great tv channel and is already available to viewers in the Vancouver area (even as part of basic cable). I would like to see it offered and available to viewers in Edmonton and Calgary.

I looked up Shaw's channel lineup and ME TV is not on it. Those who love ME TV would also love the Antenna TV channel as well.

Hey linarm, I just called Shaw just to verify that they carry kvos me tv in Alberta, and I was told that they carry it just on their  Shaw cable in Alberta, i gave my postal code to make sure we are eligible and we are, but it’s not carried on their satellite tv, only cable. I was only asking about Alberta so I don’t know about any other areas.

Shaw carries KVOS in BC. They don't list it on their website for available channels in any Alberta town I've tried. 

 

KVOS is changing. It's losing some of the content and has a new owner that is moving things around.

Oh no!

Thanks for the update though. I guess in the meantime I’ll just keep buying the retro DVD box sets. Smiley Sad

KVOS aside, as I type this, I am watching MeTv in Kelowna on a Shaw channel 41. It is now 2019 and still no MeTv in Alberta. Now is the time for a good family channel like MeTv to finally come to Alberta.

Please add MeTV to Telus TV!! I was surprised to see it included on SHAW cable when I visited BC!!  So great for Babyboomers!! Columbo, Perry Mason, Green Acres!!

I see a lot of requests for METV for Alberta going back as far as 2015. Do we have this channel - no. Obviously TELUS pay attention to this forum.

It would be nice to have a reason.. let’s keep the request going..

Short answer is the CRTC hasn't approved MeTV for rebroadcast outside of the existing area it's available in central and southern BC.

Is there anyway we can petition the CRTC to look at approving the rebroadcast outside of the existing area?

As a consumer? Not that I know of.
