(VERMILLION, SD) – TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2017

South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) is pleased to announce the launch of The South Dakota Network at SD.net.

SD.net provides direct access to live webcasts, news, and information from the South Dakota Legislature, state boards and commissions, and the South Dakota High School Activities Association.

SD.net serves as a central hub for SDPB’s coverage of the South Dakota Legislature, the 100+ South Dakota Boards and Commissions, the Legislative Research Council, and South Dakota high school activities. On SD.net, South Dakotans can easily access minutes, public documents, information on members, and agendas for scheduled meetings.

SD.net includes a mobile app so users can access legislative and other meetings through iPhones, iPads and Android devices.

“South Dakota citizens deserve the opportunity to know about and participate in their government,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard. “One of my top priorities as governor has been to make state government more open and accessible. I thank South Dakota Public Broadcasting for helping to further government transparency by creating SD.net.”

“SDPB envisions The South Dakota Network as a robust digital repository of meetings and events happening across our state,” said Julie Overgaard, SDPB Executive Director. “SD.net is a place where South Dakotans can watch and listen to their state government at work, participate in a celebration, watch their home team win a state championship, or attend a great speech without ever leaving home. Users will also have easy access to other resources and archival content.”

Users can download the free South Dakota Channel app by visiting www.SD.net using their phone or tablet or by visiting the Apple App Store or Google Play. Meeting reminders and archive files can be sent to followers via Twitter @SDnet.
