The STV Tower: Slovak TV's headquarters in Bratislava

Slovak Television (STV; Slovenská televízia in Slovak) is a state-owned public television network in Slovakia. It was created in 1991 from the Slovak part of the former Czechoslovak Television (established in 1956). STV is funded from a combination of television licence fees, advertising, and government funding.

Currently there are three channels: Jednotka ("One"), Dvojka ("Two") (called STV1 and STV2 before the name change in 2004), and Trojka ("Three"), a sports channel, launched in 2008. These channels cover the entire territory of Slovakia.

Broadcasting was on a 24-hour basis between 1987 and 1994, and is currently from 06:00 to 01:30.



All channels are available on analogue terrestrial television and cable, and via the Astra 3A satellite at 23.5° east through CS Link and Sky Link. The channels were moved from the Eurobird 1 satellite (28.5°E) in late 2005, which caused complaints from people in parts of the country who could not receive the signal from the new position, even with a one-metre diameter satellite dish. They are also available from Astra 1KR at 19.2° east.
