Slovenská televízia (Slovak pronunciation: [ˈsloʋenskaː ˈteleʋiːzia]; Slovak Television) or STV was a state-owned public television organization in Slovakia. It was created in 1991 as the Slovak part of the former Czechoslovak Television and was headquartered in Bratislava. It was funded from a combination of television licence fees, advertising, and government funding.
As a parliamentary response to increasing debt, on 1 January 2011, STV was merged with the state-owned public radio organization Slovenský rozhlas (Slovak Radio) to create Rozhlas a televízia Slovenska (Radio and Television of Slovakia).
STV was a regular member of the European Broadcasting Union.
STV operated three channels during its existence. They were named Jednotka (One), Dvojka (Two) (called STV1 and STV2 before a name change in 2004), and Trojka (Three), a sports channel launched in 2008.
Trojka ceased broadcasting on 30 June 2011, while the other two channels continued to operate as a part of Rozhlas a televízia Slovenska. The three channels covered the entire territory of Slovakia
Broadcasting was on a 24-hour basis. Between 1987 and 1994, it was limited from 06:00 to 01:30.
