Bangla TV is a UK-based satellite television channel, established by the British Bangladeshis targeting the Bengali speaking people in the United Kingdom, and in Europe.
Launched in 1999, Bangla TV was the first Bengali language television channel in the UK. It operated as a subscription-only channel until 2005, following the arrival of Channel S, a rival channel providing a free-to-air service targeting its programming specifically for the Bengali Sylheti community in the UK. Following the launch of Channel S, Bangla TV also switched over to a non-subscription based model and to date have been providing the service free.
