SES/RTS, part of the WIN Television network, is an Australian television station licensed to, and serving Mount Gambier and Riverland in South Australia. The station commenced transmissions on March 25, 1966.

History

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

In September 2007, WIN Television announced plans to convert the station into a sole Seven Network WIN SA affiliate, due to a disagreement with the Nine Network's owner, PBL Media, over affiliation advertising revenue.

SES and RTS are one of only 4 stations in all of Australia not to have a dedicated High Definition service. This is apparently in the planning stages at present.

Programming

SES and RTS are currently converting to sole Seven Network affiliation.
