Government Information Services Limited (GISL) Television 4 (TV4) formerly The National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC), is a television station serving Trinidad and Tobago. The station broadcasts on channels 4 and 16. Its studios are located at Lady Young Road, Morvant, Trinidad and Tobago.
In 1991, AVM Television signed-on as the second privately owned broadcast station in Trinidad and Tobago, owned by television veteran Dale Kolasingh. The station was largely unprofitable, and in the late 1990s, the station was acquired by the state and merged with the then International Communications Network which formed the National Broadcasting Network and it was re-branded "The Information Channel".
On January 15, 2005, NBN was shut down. The facility where The Information Channel broadcast from is being leased to the National Carnival Commission and the channel was re-branded NCC TV to broadcast the Carnival celebrations scheduled to take place in February of that year. It was then changed to TV4 in 2011 and broadcasts local cultural events.
Then TV4 remained on the air broadcasting cultural, sport and Government programming. It was the main outlet for the National Lotteries Online Draws, including Play Whe, Cash Pot, and Lottery Classic from January 15, 2005, when ttt till Caribbean New Media Group, C TV acquired the draws sometime in 2009.
