Several attempts are being made by media stakeholders to convert and transform NTV into a truly Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) entity. NTV, being currently owned by the government, has lost its editorial independence and is blamed for continuously being a government mouthpiece. As the country's oldest television channel, a need for transforming its operation into the hands of the public is realized by media experts in Nepal.
