TVR Internaţional (TVR International, abbreviated as TVRi) is the international channel of Televiziunea Română, Romania's government-funded television network. TVR International provides free-to-air 24-hour broadcast throughout Europe, Canada and the US. In July 2005, it introduced broadcasts to Australia and New Zealand.

The channel provides content mainly in Romanian, for Romanians throughout the world, but also in Romania's minority languages, especially Hungarian, Romany and German. Some content is also provided in English.

Its most watched programming during the year are the Eurovision Song Contest and the Callatis Festival.
