Sri Venkateswara Bhakthi Channel (SVBC TV) (Telugu: శ్రీ వేంకటేశ్వర భక్తి ఛానల్) is the pioneer Bhakthi channel of TTD. It is the first 24-hour satellite Telugu devotional channel dedicated to broadcasting Hindu devotional programmes and live telecasts of poojas performed in Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams from Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh, India.[3]

SVBC was launched by the President of India Pratibha Patil on 7 July 2008. Its main content is Hindu devotional programs. It broadcasts daily rituals that are performed in Tirumala Tirupathi. It also telecasts the annual festival called the Lord Sri Venkateshwara Brahmotsavam. TTD has decided to expand the channel to other south Indian languages. Now the channel comes in Kannada and Tamil feeds also.[4]

The channel won 11 Nandi TV awards in 2009 for its devotional serials. It is available on all cable, dish and IPTV platforms in India as a free-to-air channel. It is also streamed live on the Internet.[5]
