British Ministry of Magic

The British Wizarding Broadcasting Corporation was a short-lived wizarding television network, founded by "a few firebrand wizards" in the early 1980s, with the hope of getting their own television channel. The project was rejected in its early stages by the British Ministry of Magic, on the grounds of it being a severe breach of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy. Many wizards were upset at this decision, arguing that wizarding radio stations were perfectly legal. The Ministry eventually decided that there was a difference between the two: it was easy for a Muggle to believe they had misheard if they accidentally tuned into a wizarding radio station, but far less so to believe they were hallucinating should they see a wizarding programme on their television.
