Channel 9 is a Thai free-to-air television network launched on 24 June 1955 and owned by MCOT.


The channel was originally launched as channel 4 on 24 June 1955, it operated under the management of the Thai Television Company. The channel began to broadcast daily in 1957. In 1974, the channel migrated from broadcasting in black-and-white at 525-lines on VHF channel 4 to a colour using a 625-line system on VHF channel 9. On 3 February 1977, the Thai Television Company was dissolved and channel 9 was put under direct State administration.

On 28 June 1981, Princess Sirindhorn and King Bhumibol Adulyadej officially inaugurated the new the MCOT buildings on a 57-meters-square terrain with a television transmission, the largest in the country at the time, at 9:25 am. On 16 July 1987, channel 3 and channel 9 signed an expansion agreement. In 1992, Sangchai Sunthornwat became the director of MCOT.

On 6 November 2002, the channel was rebranded as Modernite TV. During the 2006 Thai coup d'état, the network was forced to stop broadcasting.
