Nepal Television (Nepali: नेपाल टेलिभिजन)[1] (commonly known as NTV) is the oldest and most watched television channel in Nepal. For many years this was the only television channel native to Nepal. The news broadcast at 8:00 p.m. is the channel's most popular show, followed by comedy program Bhadragol and Meri Bassai.

It also has three sister channels, NTV PLUS, NTV News and NTV Kohalpur, all owned by the Nepalese government.The network started broadcasting in HD from 31 January, 2019.

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.
