Broadcast area


NBC Family is an upcoming American digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by the NBCUniversal Cable subsidiary of NBCUniversal. It features programs which is aimed at children in daytime, and families in nighttime. The Channel refuses to air shows that are rated TV-14 and TV-MA, which makes it family-friendly.

The network's theme song is "Kipper the Dog Intro" (from the series, Kipper), which is composed by Martin Page, and performed by James Ingram and Carnie Wilson.

The Channel operates on a joint between Disney, NBC, Warner Bros, and Viacom.
