KBEV is a student television station in Beverly Hills, California. The KBEV studios are located inside of Beverly Hills High School. KBEV is shown on Time Warner Cable Channel 6 in Beverly Hills.


KBEV, originally called "Information Retrieval", was started in 1968 in a bungalow on the front lawn. An early form of programming-on-demand, audio and video content was transmitted over cables wired to the high school library and to select classrooms at the high school. Audio programs played on reel to reel tape were sent the elementary schools over telephone lines, rented from the phone company, to study carrels in the libraries at each of the schools. KBEV began active cable operations in 1974 with Theta Cable, whose successors were Group W Cable, Century Cable, Adelphia Cable, and currently Time Warner Cable.
