The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is a commercial broadcast television and radio network in the United States that broadcasts in English. The headquarters of the NBC Entertainment section of NBCUniversal, a part of Comcast, is situated in the Comcast Building in New York City. The Radio Corporation of America founded NBC in 1926, making it the oldest of the conventional “Big Three” American television networks. NBC is commonly referred to as the “Peacock Network” because of its stylized peacock emblem, which was adopted in 1956 to celebrate the company's early color broadcasting breakthroughs.

Litton Entertainment programs the network's Saturday morning children's programming under a time-lease deal. The three-hour block of programming, aimed mostly towards 14-16-year-old adolescent viewers, is branded The More You Know, after the network's long-running strand of domestically produced public service announcements of the same name.
