RTV (Bengali: আরটিভি) is a Bangladeshi Bengali-language satellite and cable television channel owned by Bengal Media Corporation. It is headquartered in the BSEC Building in Kawran Bazar, Dhaka. RTV began broadcasting on 26 December 2005 as a sister channel of NTV, and primarily airs entertainment and news programming. It is one of Bangladesh’s most popular television channels, according to TRP reports.

In 2002, Mosaddek Ali Falu applied for a broadcasting license of RTV. According to Falu, the channel’s chairman, the ‘R’ comes from his daughter’s name, Roza Ali. The channel commenced test broadcasts on 1 December 2005, and officially began transmissions on 26 December of that year.

On 26 February 2007, a fire broke out at the BSEC building, causing over 100 injuries. As a result, both RTV and its sister, along with the unrelated Islamic TV, were temporarily taken off air. All three of those channels resumed broadcasting after some time. RTV aired TV Southasia’s South Asian Superstar from the late 2000s. In 2011, RTV began handing out the RTV Star Awards. For six days starting from 6 September 2014, RTV aired six films starring deceased actor Salman Shah, marking his death anniversary.
