NBC UNIVERSAL TELEVISION GROUP

NBC Universal Television Network

The NBC Television Network’s strength derives from combining NBC’s strong national identity and programming with the local identity and programming of its affiliates in communities across America. The sale of advertising time enables the NBC Television Network to provide programming to the public free of charge.

Affiliated television stations are an integral part of NBC’s overall broadcast service. The NBC Television Network broadcasts approximately 5,000 hours of TV programming each year, transmitting to more than 200 affiliated stations across the United States. These independently owned affiliates then broadcast the NBC signal to an estimated 99 percent of all homes in the United States with television sets. In addition to airing NBC’s national programming, affiliates serve their communities by producing news, sports, and public affairs programming that addresses local needs.
