TVR3 is the sixth channel of the Romanian public broadcaster, launched on 10 October 2008.

It is a generalist channel, centered on reflecting regional events. It will use reports from all of its territorial (regional) studios (Bucureşti, Cluj, Craiova, Iaşi, Târgu-Mureş, and Timişoara). The channel will not have specific time slots for all the regional studios, nor will it broadcast on a regional level. It will broadcast nationwide the same regional report.

On December 5, 2013, TVR3 Verde aired a program containing anti-semitic texts. On a Christmas program, some anti-semitic lyrics were sang by Dor Transilvan Ensemble, featuring lyrics such as "The Kikes, damn Kikes, holy god would not leave the kikes alive, neither in heaven or on earth, only in the chimney as smoke, this is what the Kike is good for, to make kike smoke through the chimney on the street". In a statement, TVR3 distanced itself from the broadcast, saying it did not select the carol but only broadcast songs that were chosen and compiled by Center for Preservation and Promotion of Traditional Culture, which belongs to the eastern county of Cluj.[1]
