The affordable live TV streaming service Frndly TV announced today a multi-year agreement with Weigel to bring five national TV networks to its lineup. The new channels include MeTV, Heroes & Icons (H&I), DECADES, Story Television, and Start TV. Frndly TV is the first live TV streaming service to carry all five of the networks.
Starting today, MeTV will be available on the Frndly TV lineup, along with Story Television, as Weigel nationally debuts the new network. On Tuesday, April 19, H&I and DECADES will join the Frndly TV lineup, while Start TV will premiere at a later date.
With the new channels, Frndly TV will have over 35 networks in its lineup. The service will keep its affordable pricing of $6.99 per month.
“The five Weigel national networks are a fantastic addition to our Frndly TV lineup,” said McKenna. “Our customers will no doubt enjoy the variety these networks bring, including the country’s number-one rated classic TV network, MeTV. And importantly, we are honoring our promise to our subscribers by keeping our prices very friendly — and the lowest in the industry — while adding even more great programming.”
“We welcome the subscribers of Frndly TV into the family friendly world of MeTV and our full array of entertaining and engaging networks,” said Sabin. “The warmth of Andy Griffith, the thrill of all five original Star Trek series, newer and classic crime and court dramas are just a part of what our networks are bringing to Frndly and we are thrilled to be with this well positioned service.”
