Duna TV or Duna Televízió is one of two public television services in Hungary. "Duna" is the Hungarian name for the Danube. Duna TV operates two channels: Channel 1 and Channel 2-Autonómia.

Duna TV had been originally funded from television licence fees imposed on owners of television sets. In July 2002, the government abolished the fee. Today, 80% of Duna TV's funding is secured by the state budget with the rest coming from selling television commercials.



Duna TV went on the air in December 1992 as the first Hungarian TV station to broadcast over satellite. Its mission is to create and broadcast programming for and news about Hungarian minority communities beyond Hungary's borders in order to help maintain their national/ethnic identity. A few years later, Duna TV became the first Hungarian station to broadcast 24 hours a day. In 2004, Duna TV began to broadcast in North America, South America and Australia. In 2006, Duna TV started its Channel II (Autonomy TV). In 2010, Duna TV tried to become a full member of the EBU to send a Hungarian representative for the Eurovision Song Contest, after MTV withdrew because of financial reasons.[1][2] A decision by the EBU hasn't made yet.

Regional studios

The station is broadcast from Budapest, but has regional studios in Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár), Târgu-Mureş (Marosvásárhely), and Odorheiu Secuiesc (Székelyudvarhely) in Romania; Bratislava (Pozsony) in Slovakia; Subotica (Szabadka) in Serbia; Uzhhorod (Ungvár) in Ukraine, and other places.
