I sent a Tweet to @MeTVNetwork.

Beginning on 3/14, MeTV will be available on FiOS Channel 2 / 502HD

And it will be upconverted to 720P from what I understand on the HD channel.

There for me, as well.

Though the picture quilty is definitely better on 502. The framing might be a little different than the standard 4:3

broadcast TV picture ration.

KJWP's SD still does not appear on channel 2. It has been delayed 3 times now. How does VZ just have the HD feed? Who down converts the broadcast signals to SD? How was Comcast able to have both the SD and HD feeds on the air on Feb. 28th and VZ cannot?

You said,earlier post,  VZ would get MeTV on the 26th in SD.  Maybe try tomorrow.

I don't have HD! You would think the SD and HD feeds would both be available on the same day. Doesn't make sense to me being a novice on programming. Maybe someone could explain why KJWP SD won't be available until 3/26?

KJWP is only showing up with the HD feed on 502. Verizon, will the SD feed be showing up on channel 2 anytime soon? Why could Comcast, DirecTv and Dish start carrying KJWP on 2/28 and you guys 21 days later?

Thanks for the tip.  I rebooted my STB and picked up channel 502.  Channel 2 not showing up in the guide yet. At least I can get MeTV.  woohoo!

MeTV KJWP did not show up on my guide by 9 AM today, so just for the heck of it, I forced a reboot to the box and and it showed up in the guide.

Note: I only have it on Ch. 502, not Channel 2, but the picture looks really good. Nice SD/HD feed.

I also would like KJWP.  It appears that Comcast picked up that channel yesterday in the Philly region and it is also on DirecTv and Dish.  WFMZ's 69.3 subchannel which you carry on channel 460 will not be MeTV after today.  KJWP on channels 2 & 502?

Does anyone have KJWP on channels 2 or 502? I don't.  I thought today was the day Verizon was adding MeTV.  Comcast added it on March 1st.

Just got this response on twitter from MeTV:

"We just got word from Verizon that Me-TV will be on FIOS between 3/17 and 3/20. Sorry for the delay - stay tuned!"

Nothing new yet. I wonder if you have to reboot the set top box to pick up a new menu? Still no channel 2 or 502.
