National Television Service
NTS broadcasts for two hours every evening. Its programmes include news, documentaries and other educational programmes.
It competes against EM TV, owned by Fiji Television, which was Papua New Guinea's only free-to-air television service until 2008. The network currently runs in some built up areas of PNG but remote areas and minor centres still cannot find the station.
As of July 2009 the National Television Service, or 'Kundu 2' as it is known, has begun expanding its broadcast hours. Kundu 2 is on air in Port Moresby, Lae, Wewak, Madang, Rabaul, Goroka and Mount Hagen. The National Broadcasting Corporation of Papua New Guinea is expanding the stations broadcast footprint to eventually cover all areas of the country. Kundu 2 is beginning another period of growth as it comes to the end of its first year of existence.
