For general access to the Wolfram Knowledgebase, use entities of type BroadcastStation instead of BroadcastStationData.


gives the value of the specified property for the broadcast station entity.


gives a list of property values for the specified broadcast station entities.


gives the specified annotation associated with the given property.


  • BroadcastStationData[] gives a list of all broadcast station entities.
  • BroadcastStationData["Properties"] gives a list of available properties.
  • BroadcastStationData["SampleEntities"] gives a list of sample entities.
  • The specified entity in BroadcastStationData can be an Entity, EntityClass, entity canonical name, or list thereof.
  • The specified property can be an EntityProperty, EntityPropertyClass, property canonical name, or list of properties.
  • Properties that do not apply or are not known in a particular case are indicated by Missing[].
