Focus NE (Assamese: ফ'কাছ এন.ই.) (formerly called NE TV) was the first 24-hour satellite channel of North-East India, which covered the eight states of the region. It was also the first earth station and teleport of the northeast. Apart from news it also telecasted many infotainment programmes.

Inadequately covered by the national news networks, the region found a voice in Focus NE.

Primarily an Assamese language news channel, it also broadcasts regular Hindi bulletins.

The channel covers the region with sensitivity in a manner that promotes grassroots-level development.

Launched in March 2004, the channel is focused on youth and emerging society. Besides news bulletins, Focus NE offers its viewers programmes highlighting the socio-cultural, economic and political aspects of the North-East. A popular brand in the North-East, Focus NE is a mirror of the region- a wonderful mosaic of various cultures of different communities and tribes.
