ABV is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's television station in Melbourne, Victoria. The station began broadcasting on 19 November, 1956, and is transmitted throughout the state via a series of transmitters. The studios are in Southbank and Elsternwick, and transmitter at Mount Dandenong.

ABV follows a schedule nearly identical to that of other state and territory ABC TV stations, allowing for time differences and some local content - such as the Victorian Football League and state election coverage.

Ian Henderson presents "ABC News Victoria", with Paul Higgins (weather), Peter Wilkins (national sport), and Alan Kohler (national finance, presented from Melbourne). Tamara Oudyn presents weekend news and sport.

Currently presenter Ian Henderson is currently on leave. Tamara Oudyn is presenting weeknights, with Beverley O'Connor presenting weekends.
