NBC New York
WNBC, virtual channel 4 (digital channel 28), is the flagship station of the NBC television network, located in New York City. WNBC's studios are co-located with NBC corporate headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in midtown Manhattan, and its transmitter is based at the Empire State Building. WNBC is a sister station to Linden, New Jersey-based WNJU (channel 47, flagship of the co-owned Telemundo network), and both are owned by Comcast subsidiary NBCUniversal, which also holds a minority stake in SportsNet New York. The station is the oldest fully licensed television station in continuous operation in the United States.
In the few areas of the eastern United States where an NBC station is not receivable over-the-air, WNBC is available on satellite via DirecTV and Dish Network (the latter carries the station as part of All American Direct's distant network package), which also provides coverage of the station to Latin American and Caribbean countries. It is also carried on certain cable providers in markets where an NBC affiliate is not available, and on JetBlue's LiveTV inflight entertainment system and Delta Air Lines through Dish Network. DirecTV also allows subscribers in the Los Angeles market to receive WNBC for an additional monthly fee.
