List of CNBC channels

This is a list of channels broadcast under the CNBC brand by NBC Universal and its affiliates around the world. Following on from the original United States-based channel, launched in 1989, European and Asian versions were established in 1995 and 96 respectively.[1] Since then, sub-continental and local language versions of the channel have been created in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, many under a licensing agreement. At present, fourteen distinct CNBC channels exist worldwide, of which five are wholly owned by NBC Universal and a further four have NBCU as a minority stakeholder. A fifteenth channel, the Korean language operated SBS-CNBC, was slated to begin broadcasting on December 28, 2009 in conjunction with Seoul Broadcasting System.[2][3]

Local feeds

The following channels are not independent operational entities, but rather sub-regional services operated by CNBC Europe and Asia. They largely show identical programming to the main pan-regional feed, but operate a localised ticker relevant to that particular area and in some cases air area-specific advertising.
