Cable viewers in the Madison area are now able to watch a new community access channel called the Stoughton Sports Network on Spectrum Channel 980. Two years in development, this year the City of Stoughton allocated funding to purchase the equipment necessary to broadcast two channels. The channel had formerly been used as an educational access channel by the Stoughton Area School District.
Starting this month, sports will be broadcast live and replayed exclusively on SSN 980 with some sports also broadcast live on WSTO 981 if needed. SSN will also feature past year’s sports from deep within its archives. As part of the upgrade, WSTO TV and SSN are now also streamed online in full HD. Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, the upgrade will enable the city to cover sports live from two locations at once.
