Fiji Television Limited (SPSE: FTV) is Fiji's main television network. It was founded on 15 June 1994 as the first permanent commercial television broadcasting network in the country, although television had previously been introduced temporarily in October 1991 to broadcast the Rugby World Cup as well as Cricket World Cup. This was reviewed and reissued in 2000 for a term of 12 years. Fiji TV was listed as a public company in 1996 on the Suva Stock Exchange, now known as the South Pacific Stock Exchange

Fiji TV owns Fiji's premiere free-to-view channel (FTA) Fiji One, and pay TV service Sky Pacific. Fiji TV also owns subsidiary company, Media Niugini Limited, which operates Papua New Guinea's only commercial free-to-view channel, EM TV. Fiji TV's main shareholders are Yasana Holdings Limited - a Fijian investment company owned by the provinces of Fiji; and Hari Punja & Sons Limited - a privately owned investment company.

Fiji Television maintains a website, www.fijitv.info for its FTA channel in Fiji, www.emtv.com.pg for its FTA channel in Papua New Guinea and www.skypacific.tv for its pay TV service.
