Kantipur TV HD, the most popular TV channel in Nepal, brings Nepal to its audiences. Its programs provide in-depth analyses about the issues of the day and reflect the people’s voice. Its shows explore the multidimensional impacts of important events, by framing them in formats that range from news bulletins, interviews and features to satires, comedies, and social drama. Kantipur TV HD captures the many colors our lives are imbued with.
Popularly known as KTV, Kantipur Television was launched in July 2002. It is one of Nepal’s first private television stations. With a wide range of content provided via terrestrial stations and satellite, KTV is Nepal’s leading private television channel.
KTV has been successful in breaking the monopoly of the government-owned Nepal Television. KTV owes this success to the simplicity and credibility of its content. Programs such as ‘Fireside’ ‘Call Kantipur’ ‘Tough Talk’, ‘Sarokar’ and BBC-produced ‘Sajha Sawal’, among hundreds of others, are carefully chosen to cater to people from all walks of life. One of KTV’s most viewed programs includes daily news reports. With more than a hundred reporters on the ground and with the policy of thoroughly verifying reports, KTV is the most trusted source of information on current events.
Apart from hard-hitting news and talk shows, KTV features social drama, musical shows and a variety of creative programs. It was broadcast live recordings of musical performances and has picked up raw talent and turned them into recording artists. It has provided real-time updates during elections. And it has injected fresh energy into live broadcasts of sports events. Its responsibility towards the Nepali people is such that even when calamities strike–like the great earthquake in April 2015–its transmission remained uninterrupted.
KTV’s vision is to inform, update and inspire people by providing impartial, fact-based, creative content.
