NTVTele.Net features top classic TV shows from the past 60 years of television including Bonanza, Andy Griffith, Robin Hood, Jim Bowie, Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, Dobie Gillis, My Favorite Martian, Sea Hunt, Peter Gunn, Checkmate, Beverly Hillbillies, Ozzie and Harriet, Dick Van Dyke, and many other classics.
TVS is scheduled to roll out 16 more fulltime streaming channels in 2008, most under the legendary TVS banner. TVS began in 1961 telecasting to independent TV stations and has been a premiere occasional network for 47 years.
"We are delighted to bring back NTV, the Nostalgia Television Network," said TVS CEO Gene Greenberg. " NTV was a staple for cable systems in the 1970's and 80's, and it is well positioned to become a popular channel on free internet television."
NTVTele.Net is a streaming video channel that programs classic TV programs and movies 24 hours daily. While all of the classic programming is of a vintage nature, TVS plans an aggressive slate of new programs that capture the historic nature of NTVTele.Net programs.
"We're already producing a wide array of new programming that complements the classic shows on NTV," Greenberg continued. "Fans of classic television will enjoy both the new and the classic shows that will appear on NTVTele.Net."
NTVTele.Net is currently running marathon classic TV programming in its Beta stage, and will convert to a classic schedule of programming in August.
