WNBC, channel 4, is the flagship station of the NBC Television Network, located in New York City. WNBC is owned by the NBC Owned Television Stations group, and operates as part of a television duopoly with Linden, New Jersey-licensed WNJU; both are owned by Comcast subsidiary NBCUniversal, which also holds a minority stake in regional sports network SportsNet New York.
WNBC's studios are co-located with NBC's corporate headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in midtown Manhattan, and its transmitter is based at the Empire State Building. 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, 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, on LiveTV and Dish Network. DirecTV also allows subscribers in the Los Angeles market to receive WNBC for an additional monthly fee.
