China Television Company, Ltd. (CTV, traditional Chinese: 中國電視公司; simplified Chinese: 中国电视公司; pinyin: Zhōngguó Diànshì Gōngsī; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Tiong-kok-tiān-sī-kong-si) (Formerly called Taiwan Daytime TV (TDT) in 1969-1975) was established on September 3, 1968 by the then-ruling Nationalist Party of the Republic of China (Taiwan). The party owned the majority stake of the network. Trial broadcast started on October 9, 1969 and the channel formally started broadcasting on October 31 the same year.

It was the first television channel to broadcast full colour television service to the whole island.

On August 9, 1999, the channel was publicly listed on Taiwan Stock Exchange, becoming the first publicly listed broadcasting company on the island.

In 2006, due to effects borne by the media reform law in Taiwan requiring all political parties to divest their control in radio and television companies, 90% of CTV shares were sold to the China Times media group, effectively giving the station leeway to some of its satellite TV concerns, notably the Chung T'ien Television (CTi), one of major cable television programmers in Taiwan. Some CTV shows are now seen on CTi's two channels on cable.

It is currently the largest television channels on the island. Its shows consistently rated 2nd in all major time slots, and is home to Taiwan's most watched early evening newscast, the CTV News Global Report.
