Television Tonga

Television Tonga is a Tongan television channel operated by the Tonga Broadcasting Commission. It was founded on 4 July 2000 by King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV.

The TV Tonga studios and broadcast facilities are located in Fasi-moe-afi, near the Tongan capital NukuOkinaalofa. They currently broadcast across Tongatapu, 'Eua and other closely surrounding islands, such as Pangaimotu and 'Atata.

TV Tonga produces a weeknightly national TV news program from Monday to Friday -- in two versions, English & Tongan -- with a week-in-review program on Saturday. They also cover local sports and events of national interest.

While TV Tonga is working in affiliation with overseas broadcasters and becoming more of a relaying station, it is also planning on a second channel for its domestic service. General Manager 'Elenoa 'Amanaki has stated that there are plans for a second English program channel, leaving the current channel for Tongan language programs only. TV Tonga now broadcasts around 60% of its content in English and 40% in Tongan. [http://www.matangitonga.to/article/tonganews/newsmedia/televisionbonanza161205.shtml]
