* The first is Creator/{{MSNBC}}, a [[TwentyFourHourNewsNetworks 24-Hour News Network]] (not "Miss NBC"). Originally, the "MS" stood for "Microsoft", and the channel flittered through multiple themes trying to find something to hold on to. Currently, and most successfully, it's the left-wing alternative to the Creator/FoxNewsChannel, featuring commentary programs hosted by RachelMaddow and, formerly, KeithOlbermann. Less successful is their weekend programming, which consists almost of all old episodes of ''DatelineNBC'' and ''Lockup'', a prison doc show.
* The second is {{CNBC}}, the Consumer News and Business Channel (not "Cable NBC" or "Corporate NBC" or whatever) which is 24 hours of financial news on weekdays and {{infomercial}}s and business documentaries on weekends (when there is no stock market activity). CNBC also predates MSNBC by seven years; it was a relatively unknown and unpopular channel until NBC bought its older and better-known rival, the Financial News Network, out of bankruptcy in 1991. Jay Leno hosted [[http://www.cnbc.com/id/102089430 hosting]] a car show, ''Jay Leno's Garage'', on the network starting in October 2015.
* Third is the NBC Sports Network (known as the Outdoor Life Network until 2005 and Versus until the start of 2012). Will be the cable linchpin in NBC's Olympics coverage in the future, and is the main home of the NationalHockeyLeague and cycling coverage in the States such as the full run of the Tour de France. The NBC Sports Network (with the help of Telemundo, along with NBC broadcasting some games) became the exclusive American English-language source for the English Premier League (with Spanish-language sister station Telemundo becoming the exclusive American Spanish-language source), starting with the EPL's 2013-14 season, coverage that was lauded for being respectful to the game compared to Fox/Fox Soccer's spotty coverage. Another coup was NBC getting the UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}} rights formerly belonging to ESPN in the 2015 season for the last half of the year, which includes the Nationwide series and plenty of Sprint Cup races that won't interfere with NBC's NFL coverage (the network had NASCAR from 2001-06, when the NFL rights and a lack of a second network to move NASCAR to meant NBC had to give up on racing). While NBC tries to get better sports rights for their new network (by way of Comcast), you mainly know this channel outside of the NHL for airing plenty of outdoor programming like the programs of Bill Dance and Tred Barta, and sports-themed movies (expect that last one to go pretty quickly on).

NBC also owns many other channels, among them Creator/{{Syfy}}, [[Creator/USANetwork USA]] (home of shows like ''Series/{{Monk}}'' and ''Series/{{Psych}}''), Universal HD, Bravo, Oxygen, [[Creator/TheENetwork E!]], Esquire Network (formerly Style, a spinoff of E!), Golf Channel, Creator/TheWeatherChannel (which is actually a joint venture between NBC Universal and two private equity firms), and Creator/{{Sprout}}. Through Comcast they also own plenty of regional sports and news networks. This means that there is often some synergization between the networks, such as former Comcast channel Versus becoming the NBC Sports Network and Golf Channel and Sprout getting their own blocks on NBC (Golf Channel on NBC and NBC Kids, respectively). Local stations with a Comcast Sportsnet in the market also have had their sports department merged in for cost efficiencies. Creator/{{G4TV}} was originally planned to become Esquire Network, but that fell through for various reasons; the network would close on December 31, 2014.

Whereas [[TouchstonePictures Touchstone/Buena Vista Television]] and [[Creator/{{Paramount}} Paramount Television]] eventually took on corporate names to match their partners (ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios respectively), NBC's in-house productions like ''{{Smash}}'' and ''Series/ThirtyRock'' now go out under the [[Creator/{{Universal}} Universal Television]] banner alongside actual Universal-produced series like ''Series/{{House}}'' and ''Series/{{Parenthood}}'' (as did ''Series/{{The Office|US}}'', a genuine NBC/Universal co-production). {{Filler}} documentaries made up of old ''Dateline'' episodes, along with other pop culture interview programs for networks such as E! and the Discovery networks, are produced by a division of NBC News known as Peacock Productions.

NBC has also produced a few theatrical movies, but none of them ''Code Name: Emerald'', ''Who's Harry Crumb?'' (a co-production with [=TriStar=]), ''Elvira: Mistress of the Dark'', ''Satisfaction'' (in partnership with Creator/AaronSpelling, no less) made much of an impact.
