Santa Barbara, CA, September 20, 2006 – A new Internet television network for and about Santa Barbara launches on the web: Santa Barbara Internet Television has four channels with programs covering a wide range of topics about Santa Barbara and its lifestyle. Designed to appeal to both visitors and locals, three of the four SBiTV channels focus on travel, lifestyle and local information. The fourth channel is strictly entertainment.

“Internet TV and online videos are exploding into our world, much quicker than most expected,” says Dave Jenkins, co-founder of SBiTV. “Since Santa Barbara is such a visually beautiful paradise, and so many people worldwide share an interest in Santa Barbara, it seemed like a natural fit for a broadband television network,” says Pam Brandon, the other co-founder of SBiTV.

Unlike regular TV, an Internet TV network offers viewers the option to watch what they want, when they want it – 24/7. SBiTV programs are produced specifically for web viewing with short webisodes, mostly 1 to 5 minutes in length. “Because original SBiTV content is being created in high definition, the picture quality is excellent,” says Aj DeNecochea, SBiTV producer.

Destination Santa Barbara is a travel channel where you can watch, learn, and dream about the Santa Barbara area. The Local Scene Channel covers local news, events and goings-on. SB Lifestyle Channel is all about hobbies, interests and living the Santa Barbara lifestyle–wherever you are. The Entertainment Zone offers reality, comedy, music, celebrities and more.

Programs covering many popular Santa Barbara topics include Santa Barbara Getaways, Fitness on the Beach, and Santa Barbara Wine. Two of the signature entertainment programs are Dating Style, a dating show where clothes are the matchmakers, and Street Talk, a comedian-hosted man-on-the-street program.
