|Owner||Hunter Television Pty Ltd|
|Launched||1 March 2014|
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.
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. Hunter TV later reinforced their online services, becoming a community-orientated live streaming and video on demand service.
