Television Broadcasts Limited (Imaginary Lands of Nicholas division), commonly abbreviated into TVBILN, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong-based television station Televisions Broadcasts Limited. It currently broadcasts over channels 21 to 28 in all administrative divisions of the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas.

Most of the content aired on the channel originate from Hong Kong. The paid "on-demand" channel features a full live broadcast (factoring in the time zone difference) of the TVB Jade channel in Hong Kong.

HistoryEdit

In 1990, when the Third Kingdom of the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas is about to be created, there are talks of creating a new television channel in addition to the existing channels wholly owned by Crazy Television Broadcasts Limited. This is done so to create a better variety of programmes and to break the current monopoly in the television industry. The Imaginary Lands of Nicholas National Transitional Government passed the bill to create another set of television channels, owned by another company, and open for bidding in May 1992. In June 1992, the Hong Kong-based television company won the bidding.

The Television Broadcasts Limited opened its first channel broadcasting to the entire kingdom beginning 1 January 1993, and has since expanded to 8 channels.

As mandated when issuing licensing the television station, TVBILN must provide 60% of contents made in the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas among all its 8 channels; with at least 4 channels with 100% local content.
