They are broadcast on ABC1 and ABC2 as well as available online. As with Triple J, it focuses on youth-oriented (18–35) programming.

A "teaser" web page and advertisements were released on the ABC in early July. The full site at went live on 27 July 2006. jtv's first broadcast was on 28 July 2006, with the debut jtv live being broadcast the following night: a You Am I concert recorded at the Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney.
