History:
LPTV specialists DTV America helped this station start its life in the summer of 2011 as W19DS-D.  It eventually took on the WDSF-LD calls in December of 2013, and signed on in May 2015 after several modifications and extension to the original permit. It started off carrying My Network TV, then later added Dr. TV, and then was reported to have added Sonlife TV sometimes in the fall of 2015, although it was reported to be replaced with GetTV in early 2016.  In the spring of 2016 the station expanded the lineup to include a total of six subchannels, with -.1 airing only color bars.  Some sources report this will be a mix of My Network TV and Doctor TV at some point in the future.
