Cape Town TV known as CTV returning to its full name as the community TV channel marks a decade on the air in 2018.

The community TV channel Cape Town TV - known as CTV - is moving away from its "CTV" name and returning to its full name of Cape Town TV.

CTV, based in the Observatory suburb of Cape Town, will officially rebrand as "Cape Town TV" in 2018 when the non-profit, community-based TV station serving the Cape Town metropolitan area marks its 10th birthday in 2018.

CTV that is also carried on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform giving it a national audience across South Africa, has two TV studios in which staff produce various talk shows, news and current affairs programming.

Besides local programming Cape Town TV also carries syndicated international content from for instance the Qatar-based Al Jazeera TV news channel.
