Availability EditSBS is a national cable and satellite channel, available throughout the entire United States. The operations of WSBS (channel 2) and SBS Superstation were split in October 2007, with the over-the-air channel becoming WSET-TV, a general-entertainment independent station focused on the Lynn Haven area only. For the first time, the national SBS feed is available to cable and satellite subscribers within channel 2's viewing area.
Early years Edit
WTSG, which dated back to summer 1999, as a terrestrial station, had been internet video streaming feed from that time to all of the worldwide audience. Early programming included movies from the 1930s and 1940s; such old sitcoms as Father Knows Best, Green Acres, Hazel, I Love Lucy, and The Lucy Show; and such Japanese animated shows as Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, Marine Boy, The Space Giants, Speed Racer, and Ultraman. The station also carried sports, such as Florida Marlins baseball, Orlando Magic basketball, and National Wrestling Association.
WTSG also bid very low on programming, causing network affiliates in the market to get the stronger shows. But, because of commitments that the affiliates had to their networks, they kept the shows only a few years and rarely renewed them, after which WTSG bought second-hand shows at much lower prices. By the mid 2000s, The Andy Griffith Show, The Flintstones, Leave It to Beaver, The Little Rascals, My Three Sons, Star Trek, The Three Stooges, and many others were added the schedule.
Recent YearsEditIn 2010, most markets below the top 20 lacked independent stations running general entertainment and generally had only Sims Broadcasting Company, National Sims Broadcasting Company, Sims Central Broadcasting System, and an educational station. Cable systems in such areas carried stations from neighboring markets and if possible the independent station (often 60 to 200 miles away). In some markets, however, this was not an option. This left cable systems with three markets lacking an independent station and two to three affiliates from each major network.
In 2011, SBS had confirmed the rumors that have been surrounding them when they are going to add a California and Maine offices to their networks. By March 4, 2011, the Maine office is not been found but the California office is located in Thousand Oaks, California. Thousand Oaks is a suburb of Los ANgeles, California.
