The channel broadcasts programs from CNBC's international channels. Specifically, the business day schedules of CNBC Europe and CNBC Asia are simulcasted. Several other pre-taped shows from CNBC's different international channels (e.g. CNBC-TV18) can also be seen on the channel. The popular CNBC show American Greed is also broadcast.

Programming[edit]

In between live programs, various pre-taped magazine programs from CNBC's international channels are shown but these may be pre-empted for extended live coverage of speeches made by business leaders and FED officials.

Carriage[edit]

At the end of 2011, Dish Network permanently stopped carrying the channel, giving DirecTV satellite exclusivity. Effective July 23, 2012, Verizon FIOS stopped carrying the channel except on its Ultimate tier. Comcast removed the channel from its systems on July 10, 2012, but restored the channel in some areas as of August 2, but then removed it again on August 30.
