Kazakh TV is Kazakhstan’s first national satellite television channel.
Kazakh TV started broadcasting on October 25, 2002, as Caspionet. To become a more recognizable country brand and to better promoting Kazakhstan’s image worldwide, the channel was renamed to Kazakh TV on September 1, 2012. In October 2016, after the merger of Kazakh TV and Bilim zhane Madeniet channels, the channel continued broadcasting under a single brand name Kazakh TV.
Today, Kazakh TV is an image-building, educational channel about the dynamically developing and emerging Kazakhstan, its investment and tourism potential, global initiatives, cultural and historical heritage and sustainable development measures. The channel’s content is entirely original and locally produced.
