|Seven Queensland (formerly Sunshine Television Network) is a commercial television broadcaster,
with services covering regional coastal
Queensland north of Brisbane. It is fully owned and operated by the
Seven Network. Its centre of operations
is based in Maryborough.Seven Queensland started as two different services (opening dates of transmission in parentheses):|
Upon aggregation at the end of 1990, SEQ8 and MVQ6 merged to become The Sunshine
Television Network, and became the regional Queensland affiliate of the Seven Network.
The merger also resulted in the callsigns of the two services to be changed to STQ.
In 1995, Sunshine Television was purchased by the Seven Network, and became known as Seven
Queensland, taking on a generic Seven Network look.
