The St.Charlie Broadcasting Network (Italian: Radioaudizioni Circolari St.Charliane, known also with the acronym of S.C.B.N or SCBN) is the public service broadcaster of the Federal Republic of St.Charlie. It operates broadcasting on the internet, which makes it available to all micronations of the world.

The SCBN currently broadcasts five programs (St.Charlie Action News, Reinhardt's Corner, Bronisz's Parquet, NY COPS and Radio St.Charlie 1 as well as spots, speeches and funny videos) on two channels, St.Charlie 1 and St. Charlian Armed Forces TV.

History

The idea of creating a St.Charlian TV channel goes back to January 2009, when the first YouTube Channel was created specifically for the Federal Republic. However, the current official St.Charlie Broadcasting Network was created after following Francisville's example. In fact, the Democratic Duchy created autonomous working TV channels by using the website Mogulus. St.Charlie followed its example and on the 20th of May, created St.Charlie 1 using the internet program Livestream.

On September 5, 2010 the St.Charlian Government announced that St.Charlie 2, 3, Italia and Music were to be closed and only St.Charlie 1 would continue to operate [1]. As a result, all transmissions on Livestream ceased.

The topic of war documentaries was mainly the Red Army and the Cold War from the view of the Americans of the 1950s. Other than documentaries, the channel also concentrated on micronationalism in general, politics and histories of micronations. It also broadcast Jazz and Classical music and video footage. St.Charlie 2 was broadcast predominantly in English.
