Service Electric Cable TV is a cable television company serving eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey. It was founded in June 1948 by John Walson, and became the world’s first cable provider.
The cable service is well known for its original local programming, including broadcasts of local Lehigh Valley-area sporting events, including football, boys and girls basketball games and wrestling matches in the highly-respected Lehigh Valley Conference. Beginning April 2008, Service Electric also will provide television coverage of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the AAA-level Minor League affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, who will begin playing their games in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
In the Wilkes-Barre market, Service Electric features a channel that offers split-screen camera monitors from different roads in Luzerne County. On SE’s digital package, this is offered as a 24-hour channel, but on the more basic packages it is shown in place of KYW’s non-local programming (i.e., the Philadelphia news will be shown, and then the traffic camera channel will be shown, so as not to have two channels showing the same thing, as would be the case with KYW and WYOU.)
