TV Klan (Televizioni Klan) is a commercial television channel with national frequency coverage based in Tirana, Albania.

History and profile[edit]

TV Klan was founded in 1998[1] as a joint venture between French businessman Julien Roche and Albanian businessman Marsel Skendo. In fact, the channel was one of the first few cases of foreign media ownership in Albania. In 2002, ISO rated the channel as the most highly rated in Albania with 21.5% of audience share. As of 2006, the channel covered with analogue signal around 45% of Albania's territory. Klan is part of Media 6 media group including Koha Jone newspaper, Elegance Magazine, Radio Klan, Kosovo-based TV channel Klan Kosova, and ABC News (Albania). The channel is available in Europe through DigitAlb and in North America through GlobeCast World TV.

TV Klan is widely known for its long-standing political show Opinion hosted by Blendi Fevziu, entertainment productions such as Kenget e Shekullit, Maratona e Kenges Popullore Qytetare, Porta e Fatit, Kutia e Fundit and a wide range of co-productions.

Since 4 March 2012 TV Klan has been the first national TV channel in Southeastern Europe and Albania to begin broadcasting 24 hours in HD without charging additional fees to customers.[2] The channel launched 3 other channels such as Klan Kosova, ABC News Albania, and Klan Plus HD, but all of them are not yet broadcasting in HD. In addition, the station is known for being the first in Albania to own a Satellite News Gathering Mobile Broadcasting Studio.
