Televisión del Principado de Asturias (Asturian: Televisión del Principáu d'Asturies, English: Television of the Principality of Asturias) is the first channel from RTPA, in Asturias. The channel broadcasts entirely in Asturias and its programming is mainly general.
Its headquarters are located in the Universidad Laboral de Gijón.
TPA made its first test broadcast on 20 December, 2005 at 21:00. On 7 January 2006, TPA broadcast its first sports coverage with a football match between Sporting de Gijón and Racing de Ferrol, although the match was provided by Televisión de Galicia. The next day, another football game was broadcast, this time at Gozón between Marino de Luanco and Cultural de Durango, but this time produced by themselves. During the first months, all the weekend games of Sporting de Gijón, Marino de Luanco and Real Oviedo were broadcast.
On 9 June 2011, TPA9 HD, with other autonomous channels, broadcast the concert of Violadores del Verso, being this the first broadcasting on the new Digital Terrestrial Television.
