SCWisconsin is a regional sports network serving the state of Wisconsin. Originally the "Wisconsin" sub-feed of SCNorth, the network officially became SCWisconsin on March 13th, 2007 with it's own feed originating from facilities in Milwaukee; the network had formerly been based @ WMFL Corporation O&O WMIL (Ch. 6)'s studios in Brown Deer before that station in 2008, was building a new studio in the same facilities. SCWisconsin is an O&O affiliate of SportsChannel.

Due to lack of bandwidth, DirecTV still treats SCWisconsin as a subfeed & only turns it on for LIVE games, usually those of the Brewers & Bucks

HistoryEdit

The 1st regional sports network in the state was a gametime-only network broadcasting Milwaukee Brewers baseball & Milwaukee Bucks basketball games called The Wisconsin SportsChannel. It's parent companies were Milwaukee's Time-Warner franchise & WMFL Corporation. However in 1996, it was taken over by the Minneapolis based Midwest Sports Network, which was owned by WTC-TV (Ch. 11) in Minneapolis. Shortly thereafter, MSN became an affiliate of the fledgling SportsChannel in the fall of 1996, ultimately changing it's name to SCNorth after the network's sale to WMFL Corporation & SportsChannel in 2000, in time for the network's name to change in April 2001.

From 1996–2007, Wisconsin was served by 1 of 3 regional subfeeds of SCNorth; the other 2 being a feed for the Twin Cities metro area & a feed for the rest of Minnesota as well as Iowa, North Dakota & South Dakota. SCWisconsin was launched on March 13th 2007

ProgrammingEdit

Currently, SCWisconsin's programming includes Brewers, Bucks & Minnesota Wild pregame, postgame & fan shows, along with some of WTC-TV's Packer analysis shows & WIAA competitions. A reduced schedule of Wild hockey also airs on SCWisconsin through SCNorth. Since the 2007 baseball season, SCWisconsin has sub-licensed 15 Brewers games to air on Milwaukee's WMIL-TV (Ch. 6), producing the broadcasts & airing them on SCWisconsin outside of the Milwaukee market, while WMLW sold ads on those telecasts.
