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

Other important TV channels in Nepal are NTV PLUS, 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 Television and NTV 2 Metro are Satellite channels in Kathmandu valley.

There are several under going attempts carried out 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 mouth-piece. As a country's only largest and oldest television channel, a need for transforming its operation into the hands of public is realized by media experts in Nepal. To this end, an independent researcher in the field of PSB Mr. Tulasi R. Kafle (doctoral student), in his article PSB in Nepal, urges that if NTV is guaranteed its independence and is transformed into PSB model, it will be best able to promote democracy, transparency with accurate and fair flow of information.

Tulasi R. Kafle further explains why is there a need of genuine PSB in Nepal, as he explains "The media in Nepal are almost likely to come under the influence of global media giants. This movement to capture the world market by the advanced media networks is already underway. The job, therefore, is to envision the trend set by multinational media giants and prepare a strategy to cope with its influence on national body polity. The establishment of real public’s public service broadcasting is the only way to safeguard nationalism as well as the cultural identity. Otherwise, the generation to come will be completely swapped up by the flow of information as rendered by those media giants in a way they want and eventually there exists many questions on every individual’s identity. The path ahead is already dangerous one; an attempt to prevent this danger would be raising awareness in the public sphere giving excessively a louder call for genuine PSB". Nepal Government has recently launched its third channel which can be downloaded on cable or DTH operators. Currently, Meri Bassai is the most popular program on this channel.
