    TBS is avail­able on cable and satel­lite providers through­out the en­tire United States. Until Oc­to­ber 1, 2007, the na­tional TBS feed could not be viewed within its home mar­ket in the At­lanta met­ro­pol­i­tan area, due to the over-the-air pres­ence of WTBS (chan­nel 17), which car­ried a nearly iden­ti­cal sched­ule, with the only dif­fer­ing pro­gram­ming being chil­dren's pro­grams that meet the Fed­eral Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mis­sion (FCC)'s ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram­ming guide­lines and pub­lic af­fairs pro­gram­ming. The op­er­a­tions of WTBS and TBS Su­per­sta­tion were sep­a­rated in Oc­to­ber 2007, with the over-the-air At­lanta sta­tion be­com­ing WPCH-TV, a gen­eral en­ter­tain­ment in­de­pen­dent sta­tion fo­cused solely on the At­lanta area. The na­tional TBS feed be­came avail­able to cable and satel­lite sub­scribers within chan­nel 17's view­ing areaas a re­sult. TBS's pro­gram­ming was pre­vi­ously made avail­able to cable and satel­lite sub­scribers in Canada...

    Early years

    TBS orig­i­nated as a broad­cast tele­vi­sion sta­tion in At­lanta, Geor­gia that op­er­ated on UHF chan­nel 17, and main­tained a gen­eral en­ter­tain­ment for­mat as an in­de­pen­dent sta­tion. The sta­tion first signed on the air on Sep­tem­ber 1, 1967, as WJRJ-TV; Ted Turner ac­quired the sta­tion from its founder, At­lanta en­tre­pre­neur Jack Rice, Jr., in Jan­u­ary 1970 and changed the call let­ters to WTCG, which of­fi­cially stood for We're Turner Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Group (the fore­r...

    WTCG gets beamed via satellite

    Ted Turner de­cided to dis­trib­ute his sta­tion through satel­lite, en­abling WTCG to be re­ceived na­tion­wide, es­pe­cially in mar­kets lack­ing even a dis­tant in­de­pen­dent sta­tion. At 1:00 p.m. East­ern Time on De­cem­ber 17, 1976, WTCG's sig­nal was beamed via the Sat­com 1 satel­lite to cable sys­tems in Grand Is­land, Ne­braska; New­port News, Vir­ginia; Troy, Al­abama, and New­ton, Kansas. The first broad­cast was the 1948 Dana An­drews-Cesar Romero film Deep Wa­ters, which had be...

    Initial change to WTBS

    WTCG changed its call­sign to WTBS on Au­gust 27, 1979. The new call let­ters were ac­quired via a mon­e­tary do­na­tion to the Mass­a­chu­setts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy's stu­dent radio sta­tion (now WMBR) for the con­struc­tion of a new trans­mit­ter. In the late 1970s, WTBS con­tin­ued to ac­quire sec­ond-hand pro­gram­ming such as made-for-TV Pop­eye car­toons, The Brady Bunch, The Mun­sters, and other pro­grams. The sta­tion ac­quired re­runs of All in the Fam­ily and San­ford and Son...

    A high de­f­i­n­i­tion feed of TBS, which broad­casts in 1080i, launched on Sep­tem­ber 1, 2007. Much like sis­ter chan­nel TNT, TBS airs a mod­er­ate amount of pro­gram con­tent broad­cast in 4:3 stan­dard de­f­i­n­i­tion stretched to the 16:9 widescreen for­mat through a non-lin­ear process sim­i­lar to the "panorama" set­ting on many HDTVs that some view­ers have nick­named Stretch-o-Vi­sion after it was first used by TNT; though other HD simul­cast feeds op­er­ated by cable chan­nels have also adopted this prac­tice. The non-lin­ear stretch­ing process leaves ob­jects in the cen­ter of the screen with ap­prox­i­mately their orig­i­nal as­pect ratio; ob­jects at the left and right edges are dis­torted (hor­i­zon­tal pan­ning makes the dis­tor­tion es­pe­cially ap­par­ent). In ad­di­tion to true HD con­tent in 16:9, TBS HD also airs un­stretched, up­con­verted stan­dard de­f­i­n­i­tion con­tent in its orig­i­nal as­pect ratio, but com­mer­cials are aired in ei­ther for­mat with­ou...

    TBS cur­rently airs a mix of orig­i­nal sit­coms and re­runs of sit­coms in a com­pressed format that were orig­i­nally broad­cast on the major broad­cast net­works. Orig­i­nal pro­grams cur­rently seen on TBS are Amer­i­can Dad! (after being can­celled by Fox), Conan, Angie Tribeca, The De­tour, Full Frontal with Saman­tha Bee, Search Party, Peo­ple of Earth, The Guest Book, Wrecked, Drop the Mic, Snoop Dogg Pre­sents The Joker's Wild, Final Space, and The Last O.G. Up­com­ing shows in­clude Close Enough and Mir­a­cle Workers. The chan­nel's day­time sched­ule is heav­ily dom­i­nated by re­runs of cur­rent and for­mer net­work come­dies, with these shows also air­ing in the evening and spo­rad­i­cally dur­ing the overnight hours. These pro­grams are Fam­ily Guy, Friends, Se­in­feld, The King of Queens, Mar­ried... with Chil­dren, The Big Bang The­ory, New Girl, and 2 Broke Girls. Start­ing in 2018 Brook­lyn Nine-Nine and Momwill join the lineup as well.
