The American Forces Network Okinawa provides a variety of news, information, and sports programming from all the major networks, 24 hours a day.
The AFRTS Broadcast Center, located at March Air Reserve Base near Riverside, California, is the sole programming source for military radio and television outlets overseas. These outlets serve American service men and women, Department of Defense (DoD) civilians, and their families stationed in over 175 countries around the world where English language broadcast service is unavailable or inadequate. Known as AFRTS-BC, the Broadcast Center is responsible for reflecting an accurate cross-section of what is widely available to stateside audiences of the American radio and television industry. This global radio and television network service is called AFN, the American Forces Network.
