Radiotelevizija Slovenija or RTV Slovenija ( _en. Radio-Television Slovenia or, more commonly, _en. "RTV Slovenia") is the national public broadcasting organization of Slovenia. It is based in Ljubljana, with regional broadcasting centres in Koper and Maribor and correspondents around Slovenia, Europe and the world. It was established on October 28 1928 as Radio Ljubljana, and launched a television service in 1958. RTV Slovenija's national radio services operate under the name _sl. "Radio Slovenija", while the television division carries the name _sl. "Televizija Slovenija" or _sl. "TV Slovenija". Sometimes, the names are Anglicised to _en. "Radio Slovenia" and _en. "TV Slovenia", respectively.

The legal foundation for the institution is the Law on RTV Slovenia ( _sl. Zakon o RTV Slovenija). It is the only network in Slovenia with both radio and television stations. The law also requires it to air radio and television services for both indigenous minorities, which is done with the help of the regional broadcasting centres (Maribor for the Hungarian minority, Koper for the Italian minority). Approximately 73% of RTV Slovenia's funding comes from television licence fees [] .

Recently, RTV Slovenia has been increasingly active online, especially after a new multimedia portal has been introduced in 2002. The portal includes regular news updates, broadcast archives and live transmissions of most services, both radio and television, online.


Radio Ljubljana signed on the air for the first time on September 1 1928, with experimental broadcasts. By October 28, the radio station already had a scheduled programme. On April 11 1941, the station's transmitter in Domžale was destroyed and the station was occupied by Italian Fascists.

On April 1 1949 the first TV laboratory was established in Ljubljana, but was separate from the radio station. However, the task of setting up a television service was eventually assigned to Radio Ljubljana. On November 28 1958 the TV channel got a regular schedule, but it was shared by other Yugoslav republics, with TV Ljubljana getting around 30% of airtime. TV Ljubljana produced its first broadcast for Eurovision, showing ski jumping in Planica, in 1960. During that decade, the amount of programming produced exclusively for Slovenian audiences increased substantially. On April 15 1968, the main evening newscast was broadcast in the Slovenian language for the first time. It had previously originated in Belgrade and was produced in Serbo-Croatian.

In 1971, TV Koper/Capodistria, a subsidiary of RTV Ljubljana, was launched as the first bilingual TV station in Slovenia, serving the Italian community in Slovenia and Croatia. However, it enjoyed huge popularity in many parts of Italy. There, RAI still had a monopoly on television, so many Italians eagerly tuned into the new Yugoslav station, which broadcast mostly in color. Private companies built transmitters and translators in various parts of Italy that made TV Koper-Capodistria (generally known as "Telecapodistria" in Italy) available to millions of Italians. Because the station used the PAL color standard, Italians bought PAL TV sets in large numbers, ending the hopes of the French government that Italy might adopt its SECAM system instead. With the advent of privately owned, purely commercial television in Italy, the station's popularity eventually began to diminish.

During the 1970s, TV Ljubljana's main service was also gradually converted to color. In 1984, teletext was introduced, while in 1989, Radio Ljubljana started transmitting an RDS signal.

RTV Ljubljana also included a record label branch ZKP RTLJ ("Založba kaset in plošč Radiotelevizije Ljubljana"), today known as ZKP RTVS ("Založba kaset in plošč Radiotelevizije Slovenija").

At first, TV Ljubljana's second television network primarily relayed programs from other Yugoslav television stations. In the late 1980s, however, the percentage of TV Ljubljana's own programs on the second network increased dramatically.

A year before Slovenia's independence in 1991, the institution was renamed to "Radiotelevizija Slovenija" (from RTV Ljubljana). On January 1, 1993, RTV Slovenia was admitted as a full active member of the European Broadcasting Union following the collapse of Yugoslavia, and starte to take part to Eurovision Song Contest.

In the mid- to late 1990s, TV Slovenia began to face increased competition from Slovenia's commercial television stations. The public broadcaster's specific role is still being debated, and overstaffing is widely considered to be a serious problem.

In 2001, RTV Slovenia's Multimedia Centre was established to help introduce new technologies.

RTV Slovenia also finances its own symphony orchestra: Simfonični orkester RTV Slovenija (since 1956) and a big band: Big Band RTV Slovenija.

Astra 1KR [begins in October 17, 2007] .

In May 2008 TV Slovenia began to air new TV program - TV Slovenija 3 for live Parliament coverage.

In August 2008 TV Slovenia broadcasted first HD event - Olympic Games 2008 on test DVB-T channel.
