Push in television has been a big priority of the new MGM. In one of its first moves as it emerged from bankruptcy, the company in January made a play in digital TV, teaming with digital station operator Weigel Broadcasting for Me-TV, a television network offering classic television sitcoms, dramas and classic commercials to digital broadcast stations. Me-TV, which stands for Memorable Entertainment Television, has now been cleared in more than 45% of the country on such station groups as Hearst Television, Raycom Media, Cox Television, Newport Television, Media General, Capitol Broadcasting, Bahakel Communications and Gray Television. Me-TV’s library includes 70 titles from Twentieth Century Fox TV Distribution, CBS TV Distribution and independent producers, including M*A*S*H, Perry Mason, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Bob Newhart Show, the original Star Trek and Hawaii Five-O series. Me-TV follows MGM and Weigel’s collaboration on the 2008 launch of Thistv, a free movie service.
