National Indigenous Television (NITV) is a channel made by, for and about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Through us, you will discover a channel for all Australians.
NITV informs, educates and entertains its Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences about the issues that matter the most to Indigenous Australians. NITV provides a rich diversity of cultures, languages and talent.
The channel commissions or acquires content primarily from the Indigenous production sector. NITV is proud to host the only daily national news service covering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island stories across the country.
From its humble beginnings in 2007, then launched as part of SBS in 2012, the channel continues to grow on free-to-air television Channel 34. The channel now reaches over two million unique viewers a month.
It is available in 95% of Australian homes (see How to Watch NITV) via free-to-air and a number of additional platforms, including Foxtel and Austar (Channel 144), TransACT, FreeView and VAST (Viewer Access Satellite Television).
As NITV develops within the media landscape, its growing audience recognises the channel as unique in celebrating and providing a voice for Indigenous Australia, educating all Australians and opening a dialogue with wider Australia.
