TBS Superstation

The TBS Superstation is a popular American cable TV network that shows sports and variety programming. TBS, which originally stood for Turner Broadcasting System, was originally WTCG, a terrestrial UHF television station owned by media mogul Ted Turner that broadcasted from Atlanta, Georgia during the 1970s. WTCG, which reportedly stood for "Watch This Channel Grow", was one of the first networks to broadcast via satellite as it was re-launched in 1977 as WTBS. The new call letters were purchased by equipment donation from the MIT student radio station, now WMBR.

TBS Superstation is well known for its broadcasts of the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball team and National Basketball Association games. TBS Superstation also shows reruns of popular network television shows from the past.
