WSJU-TV is a full-power television station in San Juan, Puerto Rico transmitting over channel 30. During most of the 2000s (decade), the station's programming mostly consisted of music videos until it became an affiliate of Spanish Broadcasting System's Mega TV on August 25, 2008. It is carried by Dish Network and Puerto Rico's three cable companies.

Before the year 2000, the station's callsign was WRWR-TV. When the station first started, it was branded as Cinema 30 TV and was broadcasting older movies, then in 1986, became an affiliate of Univisión. The station went off the air around 1991. It then reappeared around 1999-2000.

In August 2008, SBS entered into an agreement with WSJU, which formerly had aired music videos, making it an affiliate of Mega TV. Mega TV Puerto Rico, as WSJU is branded now, carries a full primetime schedule as well as a Puerto Rico-focused newscast, Meganoticias.

WSJU airs infomercials 15 hours a day (midnight to 3pm).

On August 2009, the station opened a digital subchannel dedicated to music videos. This subchannel made its formal debut on September 2009 as PlayTV. Like competing music video channels TCV and VideoMax, PlayTV allows viewers to send text messages to friends, which are displayed on air. PlayTV differentiates itself though, in that they assign numeric codes to each music videos, and viewers can send a text message to the station using those codes to request a particular video.

On October 2009, WSJU opened a third subchannel airing programming from the Dominican Republic.
