TRT Kurdî is Turkey's first national Kurdish language television station. It broadcasts in the Kurmanji and Sorani dialects of the Kurdish language as well in Zazaki. The main objective of TRT Kurdî is to reflect Turkey’s cultural diversity on the screen. It offers programs aimed at all ages and promoting the perspective of the Turkish state and its values. TRT Kurdî programs include films, documentaries, drama series and music programs, as well as programs aimed at children and women. Further broadcasting of TRT Kurdî in Arabic and Persian is also planned.[1] TRT Kurdî broadcasts from the western scope of the Türksat 3A satellite. The satellite frequency of the channel can be received from Turkey and the rest of Europe.[2]

In addition, the informal cause of the channel is to reduce the influence of Roj TV, which is regarded as PKK's main broadcast channel.[3][4]
