NBN Television is an Australian television station based in Newcastle, Australia. The station was inaugurated on 4 March 1962 as the first regional commercial television station in New South Wales, and has since expanded to 39 transmitters throughout the northern half of New South Wales and parts of South East Queensland, including Tamworth, Tweed Heads, Lismore, Coffs Harbour, Hunter Region, Central Coast and the Gold Coast. It is owned by the Nine Network, with its schedule closely following those of metropolitan counterparts TCN in Sydney and QTQ in Brisbane.
The station's callsign, NBN, is an acronym for Newcastle Broadcasting New South Wales. NBN is the only regional station in mainland Australia to produce a one-hour news bulletin seven days a week. Since 2007, it has been owned by Nine's parent company Nine Entertainment Co. (formerly PBL Media), making it a sister station to its metropolitan counterparts. Prior to 1 July 2016, NBN operated as an independent regional station, and not as part of the main network under the name NBN. Since then, when Nine switched regional affiliations outside Northern NSW and the Gold Coast, NBN started only using Nine branding.
