Editorial: Bounce TV

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Bounce TV, the country's first-ever free over- the-air broadcast television network targeted to African-Americans will launch on WSFA 12.2 Monday, September 26th.

This new network, available to all River Region residents, will air twenty four hours a day, seven days a week featuring a programming mix of theatrical motion pictures, live sporting events from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, documentaries, inspirational faith-based programs and original programming.

Our hope is this channel will add to OUR already rich and culturally diverse community. The new channel will serve an audience what some would say has been traditionally underserved on television.  We also hope you will appreciate having another option with our new targeted network. It will bring landmark movies like "A Raisin in the Sun" to "Do the Right Thing" into living rooms exposing these films to a whole new audience.

What LIFETIME Channel is for women or the SPIKE Channel is for men we hope this new broadcast network BOUNCE TV is for our African-American viewers.  Options are good and you will have another one on local broadcast television starting Monday.

We appreciate your feedback.
