Broadcasting stations that are members of a single network agreementFull net station", Broadcasting stations that are members of multiple network agreements"Cross net station"[2]..In addition, the state in which programs are supplied from multiple key stations is called "cross net".[3][4].. Abbreviation for "cross network".

In Japan, after the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications started allocating radio waves in the UHF band, around the time when many UHF stations were established from 1968 to 1970, JNN series (1959), NNN series (1966), FNN Series (1966), ANN series (1970) established[3]..At this time, the series was not very advanced, and there were many local stations in a cross-net state.[3].. Since 1974, the number of cross-net stations has decreased and the series has become stronger.[3].

In addition,Mass media concentration exclusion principleByJapan Broadcasting CorporationMultiple except (NHK)BroadcasterIs not allowed in principle[Note 1]..Under such circumstancesNews series(Distribution and mutual use of news videos) was first formed, and from there a network for distribution and supply of broadcast programs was born.

In particularTokyo Broadcasting(TBS, nowTBS TV)But,JNNWas formed, and TBS sponsored programs other than news to the affiliated businesses (member stations) (even now, in the TBS system, sales to member stations of general programs are ancillary business of JNN. Has been done).This has saved local stations the trouble of sales, and for TBS, it has become possible to spend a large amount of money on program production due to the expansion of the program budget.

Other stations that noticed this merit began to adopt the same system.Even so, at the beginning, the number of local stations was absolutely small, and even local stations had a relatively large choice in deciding which station's program to broadcast and inserting in-house produced programs, but since 1968 (Showa 43), the local area As the number of stations increased, the power of the network increased.Thus the two are almost virtually one.However, some series are formally divided.In addition, the broadcasting network in Japan has a strong relationship with newspaper companies, which was mass-opened during the time of the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications.Kakuei TanakaHas taken the route of granting a broadcasting license to newspaper companies.[5].

Regarding the supply of broadcast programsBroadcasting lawArticle 110 stipulates that a terrestrial core broadcaster "must not conclude an agreement on the supply of broadcast programs, including provisions that require the supply of broadcast programs only from specific persons." It is a mechanism that forcibly broadcasts network programs in many time zones (By interweaving programs from not only key stations in Tokyo but also quasi-key stations, etc. into network programs, Article 110 is added. I'm running away).In particular"Prime timeIn the time zone called ", under the premise of broadcasting on affiliated stations,sponsorThis is because the key stations collectively make contracts with (see the network sales frame).Programs without this contract do not have to be broadcast by affiliated stations and can be replaced with in-house produced programs (or purchased programs), but in-house produced programs are affiliated stations (for program production, searching for sponsors, etc.). Since the burden is placed on the side itself, it is possible to broadcast the program broadcast by the key station as it is.This trend is particularly strong in recent years.

The network in the American broadcasting industry is a little different from that in Japan.There is no key station in the American network system like the Tokyo broadcasting station, which is responsible for most of the sales of online programs in program production and commercial broadcasting in Japan.

Broadcasting stations directly owned by the network are called "Owned-and-operated stations" (O & O), and broadcasting stations owned by other companies are called "Affiliated stations".
