As the Daroudo Broadcasting SystemEdit
It was started in 4946 as the Daroudo Broadcasting System. Founded by Robin Nova IV, the system broadcasted from Channel 2 in Ridgeport in Warthon and Bartholomew and covered most of Daroudo continent.
Television was introduced into the Wakshi (then known as the Ashkar Republic) in late 5003. It was the start of the Ashkar Broadcasting Corporation (ABC, now ATS). The DBS wanted to expand to this new continent. To do this joint venture, the DBS became the SBS, Secosan Broadcasting System.
As the Secosan Broadcasting SystemEdit
5017-5049: Golden AgeEdit
By 5017, the SBS had coverage across the Republic. However, the SBS was losing money, so the government decided to control the whole network. In 5029, the SBS dominates the ratings when the network broadcasted the birth of Crystal Nova, Christine Nova's first child and Harme's grandchild. Crystal Nova watched SBS growing up and became an child actress on SBS' Kids House, which still airs today. 10 years later, Maebon Nova was born and dominated SBS for five hours. 6 years later, in 5045, Anna Nova's birth was broadcasted, drawing 11.5 million viewers. In 5046, the network celebrated its centennial.
5049-5062: Competition & DeclineEdit
As SBS' ratings increased, so did competition. This began in 5047 with the launch of the Secosan Broadcasting Corporation, now known as Secosa 1. Two years later it was followed by CTS (now OldroTV), KTN (now KittyTV) and SSNN. The increase in competition led to Christine Nova's decision to tighten the control of the networks. Worse, SBS' viewership was decreasing significantly and must be fixed immediately. As a result, SBS launched a second channel (SBS TV2) and renamed the existing channel to SBS TV1. In 5055, the third channel was launched (SBS TV3, later SBS TVED, now SCT Learn). The rise of new channels was a response to SBS's increasing competition.
5062-5072: Christine Nova's retirementEdit
By 5062, Christine Nova was starting to look frailer and more stressed. By 5063, the Secosa Supernova was founded by Christine Nova and SBS' coverage expanded to other planets and moons across the Secosa Supernova. In 5071, SBS broadcasted the announcement of Christine Nova's retirement. There was speculation that the oldest of Christine's children, Crystal Nova, would take the throne. In the spring of that year, she held an election between Christine's children choosing who would take the throne, and SBS covered it. Maebon Nova won the throne with 15 million votes, and Crystal placed second with 4 million and Anna Nova last with 640,500 votes. Also, that same year, SBS began broadcasting in color.
As Secosan Central TelevisionEdit
5072-5100: Name Change & LegacyEdit
When Maebon Nova took the throne in the summer of 5071, the SBS was too large a network now that it covers too many planets and moons. The next year SBS was renamed SCT, or Secosan Central Television. The SCT network would change SCT TV3 to SCT Learn, a children's network, and launched the planned SBS TV4 as SCT Three. For the next 30 years SCT stood strong and became the Secosa Supernova's most popular network. Maebon Nova recalled this move in an interview in 5091:
- "This move was a good example of great leadership, something my mother [Christine Nova] would call crazy because she didn't know how creative I was. It's great to be Queen."
