TV Finland is operated by Finland's national broadcaster Yle, and its contents are taken from programs regularly broadcast on state channels Yle TV1, Yle TV2 and Swedish language Yle Fem.

Most of its programming consists of locally made productions and national sports events, and does not include commercials (any commercial breaks or gaps between consecutive programs are filled with on-screen stills). It includes the Yle teletext service.

On EPGs, Swedish titles are used to refer to programmes regardless of their original/main language.
