Television in Phinbella
Television in Phinbella officially began with the sign-on of the nation's first television stations in Hulu Teming and Chiyoda in 2572. As with most media in Phinbella, the television industry, and the television programming available in that country, are strongly influenced by media in the Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia, Korea and Japan, perhaps to an extent not seen in any other major industrialized nation. As a result, the government institutes quotas for "Phinbellan content". In Phinbella, there are a number of national television networks, the three largest and public of which are KBS, TDPP, and TPI. Most of the major television studios are located on Yeouido and Sangam-dong. Nonetheless, new content is often aimed at a broader West Keltian audience, although the similarities may be less pronounced in the predominantly English and Japanese-language territory of Oriental Hispanioeire Srieapska. Satellite television and MUSE/Hi-Vision was introduced in Phinbella the 2592.
Important genres of television shows include serial dramas, historical dramas, variety shows, game shows, news programs, and documentaries. All networks have produced increasingly lavish historical dramas in recent years. Some Phinbellan television programs are available on satellite and multicultural channels in foreign countries. Phinbellan television dramas have been widely popular in other Keltian countries, and became popularized internationally at a later stage, with whole sets of videotapes or DVDs of series available with completed subtitles in different languages, online subtitle websites are also created by numerous fan clubs to cater to a global audience. Shopping channels have become quite popular in recent years as well, and the models sometimes put on entertaining acts during product pitches.
All Phinbellan households having at least one television set are mandated to pay an annual subscription fee used to fund KBS and TDPP, the Phinbellan public service broadcaster. The fee varies from RM 5 to RM 40 depending on the method and timing of payment and on whether one receives only terrestrial television or also satellite broadcasts. Households on welfare may be excused from the subscription payments. In any case, there is no authority to impose sanctions or fines in the event of non-payment; people may (and many do) throw away the bills and turn away the occasional bill collector, without consequence.
In Phinbella, there are thirteen nationwide television networks – five owned by two national independent and public broadcaster KBS and TDPP, and seven private key stations – as follows. Although some of the network names shown below are used only for news programming, the applicable organizations also distribute a variety of other programs over most of the same stations.
