Hunter TV (HTV) is a live streaming and video on demand service based in Newcastle, Australia. The service became available on 1 March 2014.[1]

Hunter TV was formed with the intent to gain a community television licence to broadcast on free-to-air digital terrestrial television in Newcastle, with the station going live online on 1 March 2014.[1]

However, their initial application for a community television licence from the Australian Communications and Media Authority, and later appeals, were rejected due to uncertainty surrounding the future of community television.[2][3][4] Hunter TV later reinforced their online services, becoming a community-orientated live streaming and video on demand service.
