SGS/SCN are Australian regional television stations serving the Spencer Gulf of South Australia and the Broken Hill area of New South Wales, owned by Southern Cross Austereo. The station is based in Port Pirie, South Australia with satellite offices in Broken Hill, Port Augusta, Whyalla and Port Lincoln, and studio and playout facilities based in Canberra.

Prior to 2004, GTS/BKN were the only regional commercial stations servicing the Spencer Gulf and Broken Hill areas. They broadcast a selection of content, 'cherry-picked' from the three metropolitan networks Seven, Nine and Ten. GTS/BKN remained among the few stations that continued to 'cherry-pick' content following aggregation in the 1980s, though after 2000 it began to favour content from Seven due to its ownership by Seven affiliate Southern Cross Television. In 2003, Spencer Gulf Telecasters won the right to broadcast a second station in the same licence area, and in January 2004, SGS/SCN were launched as a Ten-affiliated station, branded as 10.

On 11 January 2011, SGS/SCN launched 10's SD multichannel Eleven, which was rebranded as 10 Peach in 2018.

Programming[edit]

SGS/SCN, as part of Ten, is the area's Network Ten partner network with the national programming from TEN Sydney and the local Ten News First broadcast from ADS Adelaide being aired.

News[edit]

As GTS/BKN provides the main Southern Cross News bulletin for South Australia, SGS/SCN does not have a local news bulletin. Instead it rebroadcasts the Ten News First bulletins from Adelaide.
