Description

GTA Vice City Stories

Little is known of the GTA Vice City Stories rendition of MeTV, except that a news branch of the network, known as MeTV News is primarily featured on the official website of GTA Vice City Stories as a faux news channel reporting on events, features, and characters in the games. MeTV News is hosted by Jenny Mitchell, with Phil Herrick as a reporter.

GTA IV

In Grand Theft Auto IV, MeTV's prominence is elevated slightly, with MeTV's Liberty City office visible at Star Junction, Algonquin and referred to as the MeTV Building. The player can also download the MeTV theme for their phone from Vipluxuryringtones.com; and on Integrity 2.0, Lazlow talks about a show "on MeTV where washed-up comedians make snarky comments", based on VH1's I Love The '80s. A Maverick spawns occasionally on the building's top. An Annihilator replaces it after killing all 200 pigeons.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Blue Brothers, teen pop performers, make an appearance at the MeTV Building, and it also contains offices for the Liberty City Rampage ice hockey team, serving as the setting for the mission Dropping In..., where Luis kills team owner Marki Ashvilli for Ray Bulgarin.
