TVT is Tasmania's first television station, delivering its first official broadcast on 23 May 1960. The callsign stands for "TeleVision Tasmania". Unlike the commercial stations in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, and later Perth, TVT held a monopoly in the Hobart market for many years (not unlike CTC in Canberra and NTD in Darwin).

Initially it broadcast from the Mount Wellington transmitter on VHF channel 6, to all of Hobart. Its broadcast licence area covered all of southern Tasmania, these areas being reached by various repeaters and retransmitters.

It continued to broadcast as TVT-6 until 1982, where it was bought by ENT, owner of Launceston station TNT-9. Both stations began broadcasting under the unified on-air identity of TasTV by 1985, thus becoming for the first time a statewide network. ENT also owned Vic TV in regional Victoria.

In 1988, TNT-9 was sold to Tricom Corporation (later Southern Cross Broadcasting), leaving TVT-6 continuing to service the south as TasTV. And with the dawn of statewide aggregation rising in the early 1990s, TasTV began its preparation, this time as the Nine Network affiliate for the state on the very moment it would restart broadcasts to Northern Tasmania thanks to aggregation. TasTV aired most Nine Network programs, some are the programs from Seven Network and Network Ten. It adopted Nine's idents and campaigns and a new slogan, First in Tasmania, in 1993, and the news service was reconfigured to that of Nine's.

The biggest change to Tasmanian television came in 1994 when aggregation occurred. This allowed both TasTV (TVT-6) and Southern Cross (TNT-9) to broadcast across the entire state and for the first time, give Tasmanians a choice of commercial stations. TasTV, now once again broadcasting all over the state, officially confirmed itself as the Nine Network affiliate and Southern Cross held dual Seven and Ten affiliations.

In October of that year, WIN Corporation bought ENT in a forced takeover and thus TasTV became WIN Tasmania, the state division of the growing regional network. It still uses the callsign TVT-6 for its Hobart and southern Tasmania licence.

In 2002, WIN Corporation and Southern Cross Broadcasting formed a joint venture company to broadcast a third commercial station, Tasmanian Digital Television, in a digital-only format as a Ten affiliate.

On 1 July 2016, as part of a wide national re-alignment of regional television, TVT swapped affiliations with TDT switching from Nine Network to Network Ten, but TVT rebroadcasts a feed of ATV-10 from Melbourne with local ads.

The station is affiliated with the metropolitan Network Ten and also broadcasts most of Ten's sub-channels (10 Bold, 10 Peach and TVSN).


WIN Television broadcasts its programming from Network Ten, including their regional signals of TEN, ONE and ELEVEN. WIN also broadcasts news, current affairs and sport programs such as Studio 10, Ten Eyewitness News First at Five, The Project and Ten Sport all over Tasmania.

WIN News Tasmania

WIN News produces a half-hour Tasmanian News bulletin seven days a week.

Weekend bulletins were previously discontinued on Sunday 26 June 2011 – they were replaced by simulcasts of the Melbourne edition of Nine News[1] until they were reintroduced on Saturday 14 July 2012.[2]

As part of the Ten affiliation swap deal, WIN News Tasmania moved to 6.00pm weeknights & 5.30pm on weekends, launching a new look.

Until the early 1980s, TVT broadcast Seven News from HSV-7 in Melbourne.[citation needed]

TVT simulcasts the weekday edition of 10 News First from ATV-10 in Melbourne, along with the weekend edition from TEN-10 in Sydney.
