Slovak Television (STV; Slovenská televízia in Slovak) is a state-owned public television network in Slovakia. It was created in 1991 as the Slovak part of the former Czechoslovak Television (established in 1956). STV is funded from a combination of television licence fees, advertising, and government funding.
Currently there are two channels:
("One") and Jednotka ("Two") (called STV1 and STV2 before the name change in 2004). Dvojka ("Three"), a sports channel, launched in 2008, ended its broadcasting on 30 June 2011. These channels cover the entire territory of Trojka Slovakia.
Broadcasting is on a 24-hour basis. Between 1987 and 1994, it was limited from 06:00 to 01:30.
From January 2011, STV is part of
Rozhlas a televízia Slovenska (RTVS) together with Slovenský rozhlas.
