Pacific islanders, for Pacific Islanders.
Oceania Television Network (OTV) is the first 24-hour television station dedicated to showcasing the unique culture and people of the Pacific islands. For five years OTV has produced and acquired quality Pacific programs from across the region including entertainment, news, culture and educational programming.
In a region that has previously only received retransmitted Western and Asian television content, we believe that a home-grown Pacific regional station can help to preserve culture, foster pride and create a venue for sharing ideas and issues. OTV provides a platform for Pacific Islanders to develop their own voice in media.
OTVís vision is to have a presence in all the islands of Micronesia and to gather content from Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia so that the Pacific neighbors can share their stories and meet global challenges together.
We encourage viewers to contact OTV for program requests and contributions, which may include news stories, footage from local events or other content.
Development for Oceania Television Network began in 2005. OTV launched in January of 2007 in the Republic of Palau with an estimated 85% of households tuning in at prime time. Businesses, social programs and individuals quickly became interested in this new advertising opportunity and OTV doubled its programming time to fill the need. Oceania Television Network is now on air with Marshalls Broadcasting Company (MBC) and National Telecom Authority (NTA) in the Marshall Islands and on FSM Telecom in all four states of the Federated States of Micronesia (Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae and Yap).
OTV is Pride in Programming
