The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is an American television network owned by NBCUniversal and is headquartered in the GE Building in New York City's Rockefeller Center. It is sometimes referred to as the Peacock Network due to its stylized peacock logo.

Formed in 1926 by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), in 1986 control of NBC passed to General Electric (GE), with GE's $6.4 billion purchase of RCA. After the acquisition, the chief executive of NBC was Bob Wright, until he retired, giving his job to Jeff Zucker. The network is currently part of the media company NBC Universal, a unit of General Electric and Vivendi.

NBC is available in an estimated 112 million households or 98.6% of the United States. NBC has 10 owned-and-operated stations and nearly 200 affiliates in the United States and its territories.
