Kurdistan TV (Kurdish: کوردستان تیڤی‎) is the first Kurdish language satellite television station in Iraqi Kurdistan, broadcasting since 1999. It belongs to the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and is based in the close proximity to the KDP's Political Bureau in Pirma (Salaheddin), north of Erbil.[1]

The channel broadcasts programs mainly in Kurdish language and can be viewed using a WS International satellite system. It transmits on the Eutelsat for Europe, Western Asia and North Africa, and on Galaxy 19 for North America.

Apart from its Kurdish language services, Kurdistan TV also offers an online news presence in Arabic and Turkish. Kurdistan TV's European offices are based in the Netherlands and Germany.[citation needed]
