Shalom TV, America’s Jewish television network is no more – at least not in name. The popular Jewish television station has morphed into “JBS” – the Jewish Broadcasting Service. The rebrand reflects Shalom TV’s expanding role on the world Jewish scene, as the channel is positioned to become the global English-language Jewish channel.
Shalom TV became the first Jewish network on American television when it launched on Comcast in 2006 as a Video On Demand (VOD) service. Within four years, the station became a VOD service on virtually every major television provider, reaching more than 40 million American homes.
In 2012, Shalom TV premiered as a linear channel on Cablevision’s Optimum, serving the Jewish communities of Fairfield County in Connecticut, Westchester, Long Island, Rockland County and portions of the Bronx and Brooklyn in New York, and Northern New Jersey – as well as other markets across the country.
