TVS (Silesian: Telewizja Silesia, German: Television Schlesien, Polish: Telewizja Śląska) is the first regional Silesia commercial DVB-T free-to-air television station with information and entertainment profile. The TVS television channel is directed mainly to the inhabitants of the Silesian Voivodeship, covering the historical lands of Upper Silesia and Lesser Poland (including Dąbrowa and Kraków basins). The company and its television studios are headquartered at Grunwaldzki Square in the Silesian Metropolis of Katowice. TVS was created as a competitor to the public service broadcaster TVP3 Katowice. TVS started broadcasting on March 29, 2008 at 10:00 am in 16:9 format.
Since the beginning of the station's existence, its programs informed mainly about events from the Silesia region. TVS also broadcasts programs promoting Silesia, its culture, history, traditions and regional Schlager music—where TVS together with Radio Silesia 96.2 FM actively engages in the promotional process of regional music artists on the Silesian music stage. The main programme subjects related to the Silesia region and the Silesian Voivodship dominate. In addition to information, journalistic and entertainment programmes, TVS also airs iconic Polish and foreign drama programmes such as Magnum, P.I., Murder, She Wrote, Miami Vice and Kojak with soundtrack voice-over translation. Since 2011, a gradual process of expanding the nature of the television station and changing the format to include nationwide events whilst maintaining a regional character of information has begun. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day.
