Nepal Television (Nepali: नेपाल टेलिभिजन)[1] is the oldest and most watched television channel in Nepal. This was for many years the only television channel native to Nepal, but several others have recently begun operation. A survey showed that The News (broadcast at 8:00 p.m.) was the channel's most popular show, followed by comedy program Tito Satya, Bhadragol and Meri Bassai.

Other important TV channels in Nepal are NTV PLUS, NTV News which is owned by the Nepalese government. Private channels include Kantipur Television, Image Channel, Channel Nepal, Avenues TV, Nepal 1 Television and Sagarmatha Television. Nepal 1 Television is broadcast from India. All except Nepal Television, Kantipur Television, Image Channel and NTV PLUS are satellite channels in Kathmandu valley.

Several attempts are being made by media stakeholders to convert and transform NTV into a truly Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) entity. NTV, being currently owned by the government, has lost its editorial independence and is blamed for continuously being a government mouthpiece. As the country's only largest and oldest television channel, a need for transforming its operation into the hands of the public is realized by media experts in Nepal.
