New Delhi Television Ltd is an Indian news media company focusing on broadcast and digital news publication. The company is considered to be a legacy brand that pioneered independent news broadcasting in India, and is credited for launching the first 24x7 news channel and the first lifestyle channel in the country. It owns and operates the broadcast news channels of NDTV India and NDTV 24x7. The two channels of the company have received 32 Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards.

NDTV was founded in 1984, by the journalist Radhika Roy and the economist Prannoy Roy, a husband and wife duo from the city of Kolkata in the state of West Bengal. It began as a production house for news segments for the public broadcaster Doordarshan and international satellite channels when television broadcasting was a state monopoly and transitioned into the first independent news network in India. The company launched the first 24x7 news channel in partnership with Star India in 1998.

Between 1998 and 2003, NDTV was in an exclusive agreement with Star India to produce all its news segment. In 2003, the company became an independent broadcasting network with the simultaneous launch of the Hindi and English language news channels known as NDTV India and NDTV 24x7. It also launched a business news channel NDTV Profit which was later converted into an information and entertainment channel NDTV Prime. The company has had business interests in general entertainment and e-commerce, and is part of the management of a number of broadcast channels including the lifestyle channel NDTV Good Times, the infotainment channel Astro Awani and the news channel Independent Television through various joint ventures.

In 1984, the journalist Radhika Roy and her economist husband Prannoy Roy founded New Delhi Television.[3] The company began operation as a production house of news segments for the public broadcaster Doordarshan and international satellite news channels.[4] It was converted into a commercial news network in 1988,[3] and became the first independent television news network in India.[5] Doordarshan allotted a slot to the network to air a weekly broadcast called The World This Week, it was a news magazine programme commissioned by the director general of the public broadcaster, Bhaskar Ghose and covered international news.[5] The weekly news bulletin was described as an instant hit among its Indian viewers.[6]

The network was also contracted by Doordarshan to produce its coverage of Indian general elections and budget session specials which too became widely popular.[3] The first election result telecast produced by NDTV was that of the 1989 Indian general election, which was the first televised live coverage of an election result in India,[5][6] it employed hot-lines across the country and featured visual graphics, discussions and debates. The format developed by NDTV was contrasted with the simple official announcements publicised by Doordarshan in previous elections and was adopted as a template by news broadcasters over the following decades.[3][5] The terms of agreement between NDTV and Doordarshan were modified in the same year and NDTV began paying a fee for its weekly slot instead of being a contractor under the public broadcaster.[5] During the initial years of NDTV there was a delay of 10 minutes which later shifted to five minutes between telecast and production of live news due to government restrictions.[7]
