The National Television Awards is a British television awards ceremony, broadcast by the ITV network and initiated in 1995. The National Television Awards are the most prominent ceremony for which the results are voted on by the general public. The first ceremony was held in August 1995 and was hosted by Eamonn Holmes. From 1996 onwards it was traditionally held annually in October and hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald. Sir Trevor McDonald retired from the role after 13 years in 2008. In 2009 the NTAs moved to The 02 London arena, changing the timing of the event from October to January and bringing in new host Dermot O'Leary. The January 2010 ceremony was hosted at the London O₂ Arena.

Categories at the 2006 Awards ceremony, which was held on the evening on 31 October were: Entertainment Presenter, TV Contender, Entertainment Programme, Reality Programme, Drama, Serial Drama (soap opera), Newcomer, Actor, Actress, Quiz Programme, Daytime Programme, Comedy and Factual Programme. There are two voting stages: a longlist of nominees featuring the most watched shows and their stars from each channel, based on BARB ratings, is published in September, and the subsequent shortlist of the leading contenders in each category is published in January.

The public vote in a huge nationwide poll via post, telephone and online and the process is verified by an independent adjudicator. Over 6 million votes were cast for the 2013 NTAs. The 2.5 hour awards ceremony is broadcast in full, LIVE, in peaktime ITV. The results are widely reported in the British media with worldwide media coverage of some categories. In 2014 the NTAs had 544.2 million tweet impressions worldwide.
