TV Network
    (April 17, 1989- )
    Full name is Consumer News and Broadcasting Channel
    Successor to The Satellite Programming Network
    Owned by NBC Universal
    24 hour business and consumer news network
    It gave us the inane ' Mad Money with Jim Cramer'.
    They had considerable difficulty getting cable carriage at first, as many providers were skeptical of placing it alongside the longer-established Financial News Network
    Ratings depend on the state of the economy.
    It did not use the peacock logo until 1996 despite ownership by NBC.
    In CNBC's Easy Money contest traders were able to open their browsers, enter various stocks into the trading module, but execute the trade after hours (assuming the browser and module were still open).
    This allowed traders to profit off of after-hour market movements in stocks that, for example, reported better than expected earnings.
    They issued a statement on the same day on their website, stating the network was 'investigating' whether one or more finalists wrote and executed computer program scripts to bypass the contest’s security measures.
    They merged with FNN in 1991.
    It is the second most profitable of NBC Universal's thirteen cable channels in the United States.
    They launched a High Definition simulcast of the network in 2007.
    They have a very informative website.
    They run several CNBC stores at a couple of airports in the United States.
    At one point in the late 1990's they were ahead of CNN in the ratings.
