RBC Network, was a American/British/Canadian Robloxian channel owned by the Roblox Broadcasting Company, and is the group's main channel. RBC was founded on March 9, 2014 as a pre-launch operation, but then it was officially launched on September 7, 2014 by TheMagnificientMan. RBC officially closed down on November 26, 2014 and was replaced by Roblox Movie Channel. RBC has plans to return in the near future, however a date has not yet been announced.
RBC Network was founded on March 9, 2014, and started as a Robloxian parody of Cartoon Network; however, the former owner of the channel, tomtim365 (now manager of RBC Network and Roblox Broadcasting Company) didn't necessarily understand the programming and format of Cartoon Network. Due to the existence of a similarly-aimed kids' outlet, GN2 owned by Gavent Television Group (now closed, folding into rTV3 after the rTV Networks acquisition of GTG to become rTV Networks Gavent), RBC Network became ann entertainment and news channel, similar to BBC One.
On July 25, 2014, co-founder dragonfruit348 announced the official slogan of RBC Network, "Live. Laugh. Love!". Dragonfruit explained the meaning of the slogan at the time of its announcement: "'Live' is entertainment and news, 'Laugh' is entertainment, [and] 'Love' is entertainment."
RBC's current main programming includes Doctor Who, Trouble Family, RBC Network News, and RBC Breakfast. Doctor Who and Trouble Family is set to start soon due to the fact that RBC headquarters & studios is in construction, while RBC News and RBC Breakfast are scheduled to begin at some point during the channel's premiere week. In July 2014 RBC annouced that will be launching a new block which is aimed at teenagers from 13-19 years named Studio Teen, the block was set to be launched in August 2014.

Criticism and controversyEdit
On 26/03/15, MichaellsGr8 stole the RBC Group Buddbudd222, usually on the receiving end of criticism, criticizes RBC due to the fact that the program formats of RBC's shows are copied from other networks, and that he believes tomtim365 is trying to give payback after an incident occurring a year ago. Buddbudd222 had a show on BBN called Buddbudd Morning, which was canceled due to changes in the lineup for the new year. Tomtim365 was fired at the show's cancelation due to the fact that he was spamming in efforts to promote the show.
On June 20, 2014, Werten25 (The then owner of RBC Network Spain) made a "unofficial" announcement of regarding the idents. Werten said at this statement "On 30 June, RBC Network will receive new "Neon" idents which will replace the current ones which have been used since September 2010." Before that statement was released, it was mentioned that TheMagnificientMan, the former owner of RBC Network, could be coming back as owner, in a conversation with Vice Leader dragonfruit348 regarding the future headquarters and studios while dragon was sending decals of pictures of the HQ. TheMagnificientMan replied at one point "Still pending, by the way i used to be owner until tomtim365 just pfft made this group, and COPIED Me. I shouldn't given [sic] it to Werten he wont [sic] make any idents." As a result, Werten began ignoring him, with Mag saying giving the group to Werten was a mistake. Mag officially returned as owner in March 2015.
