XTV is the NaSTA award-winning student television station at the University of Exeter. It is part of the Xmedia group of societies at the university and affiliated with the Students' Guild. Most of the station's content can be found on the YouTube channel.

History[edit]

There were plans for a student TV stations in 1990, involving, Guy Gadney and Thom Yorke. They proposed to set up "The Banana Network", but the idea got turned down by the Guild for unknown reasons, but funding played a part. When Guy Gudney returned from his year abroad, he did convince the Guild to set up a student TV station, and XTV was founded in 1992.[1]

Originally situated in Cornwall House on Streatham Campus, it was moved to Devonshire House in 2012 and now shares the Media Suite with the university's student newspaper Exeposé. At the NaSTA conference in 2012, XTV was chosen as the next year's host. "NaSTA40", the ruby anniversary of the conference, was held in Exeter during April 5–7, 2013.[2]
