What is 'Basic Cable' and 'Network' Television?
 

 
In Britain we have terrestrial television, which is just 5 regular channels, available to everybody with a working TV, and Sky, which is a company you sign up to to pay monthly, and you receive hundreds of channels. We do also have 'Freeview' and other similar companies who offer more than 5 channels, but nowhere near as much as what Sky offer.

Anyway, I've been watching Conan every day since he returned to television (downloaded the episodes), and he's now on TBS, right? Now, I know TBS and NBC are two completely different channels...but what's the difference between 'basic cable' and 'network' television?

im not american but i think
nbc, abc, cbs, and possibly fox are considered network tv because u dont need a cable subscription to watch

tbs u need to pay for.. meaning ur audience reach would be smaller

Network Television are channels that are broadcast over the air that can be pick up by a antenna. Basic Cable are channels that are available for a fee through a Cable company.

Basically it's the BASIC tv channels that are free as opposed to channels that you must pay for.

And you don't have to download them. You can watch the episodes on TeamCoco.com (if you can get access in Britain)

Network channels are those that are broadcast over the are and are subject to sanctions form the government for content issues. Cable is a TV service that is similar to sky, that offer hundreds of TV channels for a monthly fee and they are not subject to government sanctions. There are several companies you can by into but which one you get depends on the area in which you live and they all compete with satellite.
