The International Broadcasting System (IBS) is an Adanese commercial broadcasting television network and headquartered at Four Alexander Plaza in Alexander City's Alexander Plaza, with additional major offices in İncirlik, Cukurova and Oured, Osea. Formed in 1994 by Kemal Talley and Alexander Enterprises, IBS is the newest major broadcast network in Adana. IBS Adana has 18 owned-and-operated stations and nearly 150 affiliates in Adana and its territories. IBS Global carries even more stations throughout the world.

HistoryEdit

IBS finds its roots in the Neo network, a small broadcast group purchased in 1994 by Kemal Talley, and placed in the care of Intro Media, a firm of Alexander Enterprises. The network was quickly expanded and rebranded as the Intro Broadcasting Channel, and its headquarters moved into a new building near İncirlik's Alexander Tower. In 2000, IBS' name was changed to the International Broadcasting Channel, with offices opening in Alconbury, New Wales and Ankara, Anatolia. The name was changed again, to its current form, in 2004, and IBS moved its headquarters to the new Alexander Plaza Towers in Alexander City, Cukurova. In the corporate field of the Adanese Reunification in 2008, IBS took control of two East Adanese networks, the Osea Broadcasting Channel and Adler Television, expanding its operations and creating a new major office in Oured. After the Reunification Wars, it also scaled up its operations in the new Commonwealths, but relinquished some of these after the release of the countries in April 2013. IBS News is currently planning on separating its international headquarters from the network's, with a brand new centre in New Alexander City being nearly complete.
