    Samsung is a Korean electronics company that sells televisions, digital cameras, refrigerators, and more, but is mostly known for mobile phones.

    The FOX network is the fourth main American television network. It launched in 1986 and eventually (with the help of early shows like The Simpsons, Beverly Hills 90210, and Melrose Place) became the equal of the main three. Now, because it has American Idol, it is consistently one of the higher rated networks. Fox News and other stations are under the company umbrella with the main Fox network.

    ABC is one of the "Big Three" television networks. ABC slumped for awhile before hitting a resurgence with shows like Lost, Grey's Anatomy, and Desperate Housewives. Being owned by The Walt Disney Group now, it is under the same corporate umbrella as cable stations Disney and ESPN (a sports station).

    NBC is another of the "Big Three" networks, but it has fallen on hard times after it used to be dominant with Thursday night's "Must see TV" line up in the 1990s. It consistently rates fourth now after FOX, ABC, and CBS. It is owned by GE and is under the media umbrella of NBC Universal which also includes the television stations of the USA Network and the SciFi Network.

    The Oprah Winfrey show is a talk show created by (obviously) Oprah Winfrey. It is the highest rated and longest running talk show in America. (Although I prefer Ellen, and that show is starting to take over ratings.)Oprah has a whole entertainment empire which also includes a television network in addition to the show.

    AT&T is the largest provider of both local and long distance telephone services, wireless service, and DSL Internet access in the United States.

    Fox, ABC, and NBC are broadcasting companies.
