Swazi TV


Swazi TV is operated by the Swaziland Television Authority (STVA). Founded in 1983, the broadcaster was established through an act of parliament. Before it was established, it was known as the Swaziland Television Broadcasting Corporation (STBC). STBC was officially opened by His Majesty King Sobhuza II in February 1978. Its launch marked the coming of television in Swaziland.

The government of the Kingdom of Swaziland took over the then privately owned company belonging to an electronic group of companies based in the U.K. The company had a monopoly in all television gadgets or equipment; as a result, they were also operating a television rental operating under Vision Hire. With the change of the television station from STBC to STVA, Vision Hire also changed to the Swaziland Television Authority Rentals (STAR). The establishment of the authority through the act of parliament changed the television station into a public broadcaster.
