MSNBC is an American pay live stream TV network that delivers news coverage and political commentary from NBC News on current events. MSNBC is possessed by the NBC Universal News Group, a unit of the NBC Universal Television Group division of NBC Universal (all of which are ultimately owned by Comcast). MSNBC also provides live streaming TV online free for its viewers.. MSNBC and its website were created in 1996 under a partnership between Microsoft and General Electric’s NBC unit, hence the network’s naming. Although they had the same name, msnbc.com and MSNBC sustained separate corporate structures and news operations. msnbc.com was headquartered on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington while MSNBC worked out of NBC’s headquarters in New York City. Microsoft deprived its stakes in the MSNBC channel in 2005 and in msnbc.com in July 2012. The general news site was rebranded as NBCNews.com, and a new msnbc.com was formed as the online home of the cable channel. Phil Griffin is the head and director of day-to-day operations at MSNBC. Pat Burkey, Janelle Rodriguez, and Jonathan Wald supervise programming and news operations, with Brian Williams serving as the channel’s chief anchor of breaking news coverage. As of February 2015, approximately 94,531,000 households in the United States (81.2 percent of those with television) were receiving MSNBC.

MSNBC was recognized under a strategic partnership between NBC and Microsoft. NBC administrative Tom Rogers was instrumental in developing this partnership. James Kinsella, a Microsoft executive, assisted as president of the online component, MSNBC.com, and signified the tech company in the joint venture. Microsoft financed $221 million for a 50 percent share of the cable channel. MSNBC and Microsoft shared the cost of a $200 million newsroom in Secaucus, New Jersey, for msnbc.com. The network took over the channel space of NBC’s 2-year-old America’s Talking (AT) network, although in most cases cable carriage had to be negotiated with providers who had never carried AT.
