Watching MeTV on Your Roku Device

Have you heard of MeTV? It stands for Memorable Entertainment Television and features classic shows from the 1950s to the early 90s. I love watching old sitcoms and dramas on MeTV, but was bummed when I realized there’s no official Roku app.

After some digging around, I found a couple workarounds to get MeTV on your Roku. Keep reading and I’ll walk you through exactly how to do it.

What is MeTV?

MeTV is owned by Weigel Broadcasting and airs programming like I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, Bonanza, Hawaii Five-O, and tons more classics. It’s available on platforms like:

  • DISH Network
  • Free C-band satellite
  • AT&T U-verse
  • Certain cable providers

So why not Roku? Unfortunately MeTV just doesn’t have an official Roku channel yet. But don’t worry, where there’s a will there’s a way!
