Nepal Television (Nepali: नेपाल टेलिभिजन)[1] is the oldest and most watched television channel in Nepal. This was for many years the only television channel native to Nepal, but several others have recently begun operation. The News (broadcast at 8:00 p.m.) is the channel's most popular show, followed by comedy program Bhadragol, Meri Bassai and Jire Khursani.

Several attempts are being made by media stakeholders to convert and transform NTV into a truly Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) entity. NTV, being currently owned by the government, has lost its editorial independence and is blamed for continuously being a government mouthpiece. As the country's only largest and oldest television channel, a need for transforming its operation into the hands of the public is realized by media experts in Nepal.
