WHolesome Entertainment Network
Betterview Pics also owns the popular channel WHEN, or WHolesome Entertainment Network. The channel is known for showing wholesome clean family television, new and old, and also operates WHENkids (the kids channel) and WHENfilm (the movie channel. WHENfilm only shows movies produced by Betterview Pics and now, more recently, WoolMedia.)
WHEN TV is also known for some of their classic Christian television shows, such as The Mandy Griffin Show, Leave it to Chipmunk, Granola Street and The Puppet Show.
Acquisition of WoolMedia
In April 2015, Woolonia's WoolMedia agreed to an acquisition by Betterview Pictures. The combined company, though not often called such, is now technically named WoolMedia-Betterview Studios. Betterview now owns all of WoolMedia's rights, but the new company acts more as a bridge than a hostile takeover. WoolMedia employees retained their jobs and WoolMedia still produces their own movies and shows, such as popular superhero series, Astrosheep.
Acquisition of KIDZ-TV
In August 2015, Betterview bought KIDZ-TV, creating a whole new network of channels for family entertainment. The newly formed Betterview Channel, aka BVTV and BVKidz (the replacement for KIDZ-TV) made for great kids networks as competition to channels like the Wisney Channel and Wisney XP while BVCartoonCentral became a direct competitor for networks like Cartoon Channel. BVRetro simply shows older shows and is only available for Cable and Dish viewers, since many of the same shows come on channels like CeTV.
In June 2015, WoolMedia-Betterview Studios launched WMN, aka the WoolMedia Network. It acts as an international expansion of Woolonian Broadcasting Network, now airing in Freedemia, Woolonia, and around the world via Cable and Satellite.
Along with the launch of WoolMedia Network came new classic network CeTV, aka Classic Entertainment Television. CeTV shows classics such as The Partridge Bunch, One's Company, Mini Wonder, Milligan's Island, Lasherne and Virley, Stanford and Son, The Crosby Show, Cheery Days, Doctor What, Terry Mason, The Midnight Zone, The Jetfields, The Fossilrocks, and more.
The merger with WoolMedia brought some small changes to the BVTV network system. An even more recent merger with KIDZ-TV allowed for a new system of networks with kids and family programming, including a huge amount of cartoons. Currently, Betterview-owned stations include:
- BVTV- Betterview Television, otherwise known as the Betterview Channel. Largely family entertainment.
- BVKidz- Kids and family programming primarily. (Formerly KIDZ-TV)
- BVCartoonCentral- Betterview and WoolMedia Cartoons. All cartoons all the time. All family friendly, but for a wider range of audiences.

- WMN- WoolMedia Network (Cable and Dish only)
- CeTV- Classic Entertainment Television
- WHEN- Wholesome Entertainment Network
- WHENkids- Wholesome Kids Shows with Christian wholesome values (Escapades in Odyssey, etc)
