Does this mean ME TV is on the way out? I certainly hope not because my mom watches a lot of Perry Mason on that channel every night.

The video is about channels that have "sold out" and went from showing old shows to showing new stuff.

It actually mentions MeTV as one of the few that has stayed mostly true to what it was when it started.

You know we have got a LOT of channels from our service provider, I know there's still a Nickolodeon channel but is Nick at Nite a thing anymore? I mean there's not many other channels where you're going to see old shows like Bewitched, Dragnet, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore show, etc anymore. Me TV does a great job but even they can't get all the rights to all those great old shows.

Yes..it is just about "sold out" and it really went from showing old shows to developing,displaying,and also a great quality new stuff.

That clip comes from The Toys that Made Us (On Netflix and DVD) and the whole series is filled with hilarious anecdotes like that. I highly recommend it.
