Jewish Broadcasting Service is an American Jewish television network. JBS programming includes daily news reports from Israel, live event coverage and analysis, and cultural programming of interest to the North American Jewish community. The network is a full-time HD and SD channel. It is an English-language network produced by the non-profit organization Jewish Education in Media (JEM) (not to be confused with Jewish Educational Media, distributors of Chabad Lubavitch movement materials). The goal of this organization is to reach out to lesser affiliated Jews and bring them closer to their Jewish religion and Identity.
Shalom TV was developed by Rabbi Mark S. Golub in 2003, and began telecasting on August 31, 2006. In 2008, Comcast launched Shalom TV On Demand nationally. The On Demand version of Shalom TV expanded to more than 20 video distributors available to more than 40 million homes throughout North America.
In May 2012, Shalom TV became available as a Roku channel. On December 7, 2012, Optimum Cable (Cablevision) launched the Shalom TV Channel. Shalom TV was renamed JBS on September 24, 2014.
In September 2016, JBS became available nationally as a channel on DIRECTV channel 388. JBS launched in August 2017 on Verizon Fios in HD on channel 798.
