Television assumed prime importance in Kosovo since the inception of the first Albanian-speaking channel, Television of Prishtina, in 1975. This marked the beginning of television’s dominance in Kosovo’s media. Despite challenges of running media outlets during the 1990s, the post-war era witnessed a significant resurgence in television media. The establishment of Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK) in 1999, coupled with private channels like KTV and RTV21, contributed to a diverse and vibrant television landscape, which has since expanded with a greater number of stations today. Today, television remains the primary source of information for Kosovo, with an 82% trust rate and a penetration rate of 99.72%.
