The Cookeslandic Broadcasting Company, more often known as the CBC, is a large broadcasting company that offers free broadcasts of International News, Sport Clips, and regularly scheduled television programs. It currently broadcasts globally. CBC is a privately owned corporation and is funded via donations from viewers.


CBC was founded to provide the people of Cookesland with entertainment and a window to the other cultures of the world. Its shows come from around the world and it broadcasts in 30 different languages at last count. CBC often competes with other major broadcasting companies from around the world. This is due in part to the large recent influx of National Broadcasting Companies from around the world, but there's nothing like some good competition.
