MeTV Coming to WJFB 44.1

- Posted September 12th, 2019 at 2:20pm
I just saw a commercial on MeTV alerting viewers that beginning Sept. 23rd, MeTV will start airing on WJFB 44.1. It also said something about channels as in more than one and to re-scan then. Awhile back I had seen on about WJFB's schedule. I didn't know if it was true or not, but now given that MeTV is coming to 44.1, it may be. I am posting a screen shot below I took of the schedule. It has 44.1 MeTV, 44.2 ThisTV, 44.3 StartTV, 44.4 Decades, and 44.5 Movies!. We will see if it has those channels come Sept. 23rd. Until then or when news breaks again, I will post then.

Just knowing I'll still be able to get MeTV on a station with a pretty good signal alone makes me happy. If those other channels are moved to there as well, then all the better! If only H&I was on a channel a I could receive then my life would be complete ;-)

Also, I forgot to say thanks for letting us all know about this! I just saw the commercial myself.

This is awesome news if true! Since WJFB was recently sold, it makes sense the new owners—which is a corporation and not religiously affiliated, at least as far as I know—would move to more commercial content.

FYI - for those who may watch over the air and also have Xfinity Comcast - WJFB is on cable on channel 22.

Thanks for the update on METV. I really appreciate it.

This IS good news! Especially since Channel 44 is one of the few channels I’ve been able to receive without interruption. Looks like they're carrying all of the Weigel diginets except H&I. This TV appears to be a bonus. I’ve watched Start TV and Movies! when visiting family in Memphis. They replaced Decades with Start TV down there. Maybe H&I will come someday.

Do you know if Ch 44 is going to boost their power? I only get it sometimes at night and I am really disapointed if i cant get METV?

Well, they will change channel from 44 to 25 next month. They also will be going from 1000kw to 950kw. Now even though that is going down in power, somehow changing channels to channel 25 will increase the broadcasting radius. I don't know how but it is suppose to. That is what I get from comparing the contour plots from Here is the link to WJFB channel 44's contour plot -, and here is the one for WJFB channel 25's contour - If you have them in separate tabs and switch back and forth, you can see that there is a difference.

I hope this new broadcaster's channels have a good strong transmitter. I get channel 2.2 perfectly clear here in Clarksville on my indoor antenna, but apparently channel 4's transmitter is WEAK. No signal at all here, so no COZI TV for me. I'm going to be irritated if I have to set up an outdoor antenna for MeTV.

Yeah, this station (WJFB) has been on the air since 2007. I am sorry to say, but you may have to put up an outdoor antenna since they actually broadcast from a tall hill near Lebanon, TN and you live in Clarksville. Next month, they will switch to channel 25, but in the same spot as they are now. There might be some enhancement when they do change channels. If there is anything I can help with, just let me know.
