A legislature broadcaster is a broadcaster, a television channel or a radio station that mainly broadcasts sound or video from the legislature and other parliamentary chambers such as parliamentary commissions in a city, state or in a country.

They can be either owned by the legislature chamber itself such as Europe by Satellite owned by the European Commission, Lok Sabha TV by the Lower House of Indian Parliament, Rajya Sabha TV by the Upper House of Indian Parliament or the Knesset Channel, the country's public broadcaster like BBC Parliament, S4C2 or ABC NewsRadio, or a private company like C-SPAN or CPAC.

When the chamber is down or on holiday, either the channel goes down or other public affairs programming is broadcast.
