Nou Televisió (Valencian pronunciation: [ˈnɔw televiziˈo]), or simply Nou (Valencian/Catalan for "nine" or "new"), was a public television station in the Valencian Community, Spain. It was run by RTVV which operated from Burjassot. It was broadcast in Valencian and Spanish and it could be watched in the Valencian Community and adjacent areas, especially Catalonia. It had been broadcasting since the late 1980s. The previous name of this chain was "Canal Nou" (Channel nine)

The station broadcast in stereo, and it was often possible to watch programmes in dual language (original soundtrack and Valencian (or Spanish) dub).

In July 2012, in the middle of the ongoing financial crisis, RTVV announced a labor force adjustment plan, firing 1,198 of its 1,660 employees. Trade unions CCOO and CGT challenged the measure, and on 5 November 2013 it was nullified by the National Court. Claiming that reinstating the employees was untenable, the Generalitat Valenciana closed down RTVV that same day.[1][2][3]

Lie. His political party (PP) keep on ruining the station for 20 years and he killed it. Fabra's failure ends with RTVV. El País, 5 November 2013
