Ho Chi Minh City Television (HTV) is the official television channel of Ho Chi Minh City. HTV broadcasts in three channels: entertainment & advertisement service, most notably locally licenced versions of international franchies Family Feud and So You Think You Can Dance on HTV7, Kids channel programming on HTV3, information, propaganda-trend, official and analog-digital on HTV9, and HTV4. HTV also has several specific cable and digital television channels.

HTV is an administrative unit (not a company) under the administration of the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee. All news and releases must go through censorship of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Culture and Communication. HTV is the largest local television broadcaster in Vietnam and second to VTC Digital.

HTV replaced the old Vietnam Television (THVN) in Ho Chi Minh City after reunification of Vietnam.
