SES/RTS - History


It was originally two individual stations serving different regions. SES-8 commenced transmissions on 25 March 1966 serving Mount Gambier and south-east South Australia. RTS-5a began on 26 November 1976 serving Loxton, Renmark and the Riverland.

In 1999, WIN Television acquired SES and RTS and integrated them into the WIN Television network.

Prior to 2004, SES/RTS was the only commercial television station broadcasting in Mount Gambier and the south east of South Australia. The station broadcast a mixture of programs derived from the Seven Network, Nine Network and Network Ten. However in 2004, WIN Television introduced a sole Network Ten affiliate, WIN Ten (MGS/LRS), becoming the second commercial television station in the region. Following this, SES/RTS became a sole Nine Network affiliate, only sport programs (particularly AFL matches) being acquired from the Seven Network.

SES and RTS, along with GTS/BKN, switched off its analogue signal on 15 December 2010 at 9am. SES and RTS plan on starting to provide the multichannels GO!, GEM, 7TWO, 7mate, One and Eleven, expanding to the south east area from November 11, with other areas to be complete by early 2012.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.
    Richard M. Nixon (b. 1913)

    It gives me the greatest pleasure to say, as I do from the bottom of my heart, that never in the history of the country, in any crisis and under any conditions, have our Jewish fellow citizens failed to live up to the highest standards of citizenship and patriotism.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    You treat world history as a mathematician does mathematics, in which nothing but laws and formulas exist, no reality, no good and evil, no time, no yesterday, no tomorrow, nothing but an eternal, shallow, mathematical present.
    Hermann Hesse (1877–1962)
