Telegraph Agency of Turkmenistan was opened in 1924, shortly after the declaration of Ashgabat as the capital of the Turkmen SSR. In 1925 it was renamed to the Turkmen Telegraph Agency (TurkmenTAG) with the status of a republican organ of the Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union (TASS). In the mid-1970s, it was renamed to the Turkmeninform News Agency.
TDH was established in 1991 in independent Turkmenistan. In 1992, it was renamed the State News Agency Turkmen-Press simultaneously with the separation from the TASS structure.
On May 4, 2000, it was renamed into the Turkmen State Information Service Turkmendovlethabarlary (Turkmen: Türkmen Döwlet habar gullugy).
In November 2013, TDH launched a redesigned website which provides the function of Turkmen TV streaming. This project has been jointly prepared by the Ministry of Communications and is the only one in Turkmenistan.
On November 20, 2014 it was renamed the State News Agency of Turkmenistan (TDH).
