This article is not to be confused with the real Seven Network in Australia.  The Seven Network is a major television network in Australia that is available on multiple cable systems and satellite systems in Canada, the United States, the UK, Jamaica, and New Zealand. The Australian side of the network is currently owned by Seven West Media Limited, while the American side of the network is owned by Adelphia Communications Corporation, a partnership between Island Television, Oakhurst Broadcasting, and Higgins Broadcasting.

History

Australian roots

The Seven Network began as a group of independent stations in Sydney; Melbourne; Brisbane, Queensland; Adelaide, South Australia; and Perth, Western Australia. HSV-7 Melbourne, licensed to The Herald and Weekly Times Ltd (owners of two local papers at the time, The Herald and The Sun), was the first station in the country to use the VHF7 frequency. It launched on 4 November 1956, soon joined on 2 December by ATN-7 in Sydney, owned by Fairfax subsidiary Amalgamated Television Services. Since 2007, the Seven Network has been the highest rated television network in Australia, ahead of the Nine Network, Network Ten,ABC and SBS. In 2011 the Seven Network won all 40 out of 40 weeks of the ratings season for total viewers. Seven is the first to do this since the introduction of the OZtam ratings system in 2001. As of 2014, it is the second largest network in the country in terms of population reach.

American Expansion

Following the Nine Network's expansion to the United States, the Seven Network decided to follow suit. Seven Network decided to reach out to see who would be willing to lend a helping hand. Going on at the same time, after Lady Luck purchasing a share of UPN and Capital Cities purchasing a share of The WB, Island Television, Oakhurst Broadcasting, and Higgins Broadcasting looked into possibly purchasing a share of a network. Island Television, Oakhurst Broadcasting, and Higgins Broadcasting decided to pitch in and form a new company between the three. On Jan. 5, 2014, the new company became Adelphia Communications Corporation (not to be confused with the defunct cable provider of the same name). Adelphia agreed to run the American version of the Seven Network. And on Oct. 3, 2014, Seven Network started broadcasting in America on stations owned by Island Television, Oakhurst Broadcasting, and Higgins Broadcasting on their subchannels. In some markets, The Seven Network is available as a stand-alone affiliate.
