CSTV Networks, Inc. is the first multimedia network dedicated exclusively to college sports 24 hours a day. It consists of CSTV, a digital television service seen in more than 21 million homes via cable and satellite, and CSTV.com, which includes a network of approximately 215 official college athletic websites.
CSTV was founded in 1999 by Brian Bedol and Stephen D. Greenberg, co–founders of Classic Sports Network, and Chris Bevilacqua, a former Nike executive. CSTV officially launched in April 2003 from the network's New York City based Chelsea Piers Studio, the Field House. In January 2006, CSTV was purchased by CBS Corporation and became the 24–hour college sports network from CBS Sports.
