1976 WTCG-TV owner Ted Turner obtains 100\% of the Atlanta Braves for $12 million. "Captain Ted" purchases the club to provide sport programming for his local channel 17, but when the FCC permits the station to use a satellite late in 1976 to broadcast shows on cable networks, the franchise, now available to be viewed by millions of subscribers, will become known as America's Team.
